The 2020 ceremony was held virtually due to the pandemic, but this year marks a return to regular proceedings, with the awards celebrating their tenth anniversary.

Kim O’Brien, the founder of the Educate Awards, said: “A huge well done to the schools and colleges who have made this year’s shortlist.

“After a difficult 18 or so months, it is extremely important that we recognise the amazing schools and colleges which have supported students, families, staff and the wider communities during the pandemic. The calibre of entries was absolutely incredible, and deciding on the shortlist was a really difficult process.

“As 2020’s ceremony didn’t take place in its usual format, we are excited to be planning a spectacular event which makes up for last year. We’ll be revealing some really exciting new details over the next few weeks, so keep an eye out! We look forward to celebrating with you all on 19 November!”
