Caterham School – Independent Senior School of the Year

It was a night to celebrate for teachers and schools across the UK, as the winners of the Tes Schools Awards – one of the most prestigious events in the UK education calendar – were announced.  Dubbed the ‘Oscars of Education’, the Tes Schools Awards, is now in its landmark 15th year and celebrates the extraordinary commitment, quality and innovation shown by teachers and support staff across the UK. The awards ceremony took place on Friday 23rd June at the Grosvenor House Hotel, on London’s Park Lane.

The 2023 Tes Schools Awards brought together the best teachers and schools from UK state and independent settings, including early years, primary schools and secondary schools.

The panel of awards judges included school leaders, experts and education researchers. The objectivity, professionalism and high standards of the Tes Schools Awards judges and the judging process has helped establish the awards as a well-respected achievement for any school chosen as a finalist or winner. Caterham School was announced as the Independent Senior School of the Year with actor James Nesbitt presenting the award.

Tes editor and chief judge of the Tes Schools Awards Jon Severs said: “With these awards we honour the education community, who we’ve served for nearly 113 years. This year has seen some incredibly high-quality entries.

“These awards showcase just how vital our education professionals are to every facet of this country. Teachers, leaders and support staff all play such an important role in schools: this is our chance to say thank you for all that they do.”
