Rowner Junior – Tes Award Finalist 2023

It has been revealed that Rowner Junior School has been shortlisted for the final of The Tes Schools Awards 2023 for Excellence in Creative Arts. The Tes Schools Awards recognises the very best teachers and schools from UK state and independents, including early years settings, primary and secondary. We pride ourselves on our broad curriculum which recognises the importance of the arts – we’re so pleased it has been recognised in this forum.

The most outstanding individuals and institutions that the education sector has to offer have been recognised in the shortlist for the Tes Schools Awards 2023, the 15th year of the awards. We attended last year with our sister school, Gomer Junior, where we were both in the final for our Computing endeavours. The GFM won an award an award in 2022 for Community Engagement Initiative of the Year. The judges were impressed with how proactively the GFM responded to the challenges of the pandemic, placing the wellbeing of children and families first.

The panel of awards judges include 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 them as a well-respected achievement for any school chosen as a finalist or winner.

Tes editor and chief judge of the Tes Schools Awards Jon Severs said: “With these awards we honour the education community, whom we have served for over 112 years. This year has seen some incredibly high quality entries. So every teacher and school who has been named in this shortlist should be very proud – it’s a fantastic achievement.

“We are looking forward to showcasing, as we do every year, 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.”

The Tes Schools Awards Winners will be announced on Friday 23rd June.
