The most outstanding individuals and institutions that the education sector has to offer have been recognised in the shortlist for the Tes Schools Awards 2020.
It’s been revealed, today, that the GFM has been shortlisted for the Tes STEM Team of the Year award. In the same category, one of our junior schools, Gomer Junior, was delighted to be the overall winner in 2018. Following cross-MAT endeavours, including the opening of the Gosport STEM Centre, inter-school STEM challenges and embedding of engineering habits of mind, the GFM were a finalist in 2019. The GFM are naturally very proud to be a finalist, again, in 2020. The GFM have been recognised by the Tes on several occasions, For example, Bay House were finalists last year for Best use of Technology and the Community and Collaboration award.
Tes editor Ann Mroz said: “It is always a highlight of the education calendar to see the best ideas and people lauded at the Tes Schools Awards. But this year, it felt more important than ever to run an event that showcased and celebrated the hard work that teachers and school staff do for children and their local community every single day. This has been one of the most difficult years in education, but – as ever – teachers continue to rise to the challenge. For the very first time, award winners will be announced at a virtual ceremony on Friday 13 November 2020.”
