Tes Schools Awards 2024 winners announced


The winners of the Tes School Awards 2024 have been revealed over the course of the biggest awards night in the education calendar, during a glamorous event attended by educators from across the whole of the UK.

The prestigious awards, now in the 16th year and dubbed the ‘Oscars of education’, saw shortlisted teachers and schools from across the country come together for a glittering gala at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane, London.

Featuring award-winning comedian Alex Horne and 6-piece band The Horne Section as hosts, the action-packed awards ceremony celebrated the triumph of teachers who have demonstrated outstanding achievements.

Judged by a panel of experts from long-serving head teachers to heads of educational organisations, the judges selected winners for 22 categories.

Tom Campbell, CEO at E-ACT said, “We’re really excited to be the first winners of this new Tes Schools Award. It is great to have our fantastic colleagues recognised and celebrated.”

Winner of the Lifetime Achievement Award, John Morris OBE said, “I’m so thrilled and honoured to receive this award and be recognised by Tes and the judges. In my career I’ve done what I can to lead by example and do my best to support all the staff and pupils I’ve had the pleasure to work with and teach. At Empower Learning Academy Trust, we believe that everyone grows, and the Tes Awards is testament to that. I dedicate this trophy to parents, students, staff, and my family, who have supported me in the last 42 years.”

Rod Williams, CEO of Tes said, “The Tes Schools Awards are a fantastic celebration of the education community, and it’s an honour and a privilege to be able to recognise the impact of the teachers and schools that lives on through the students and their futures that their work inspires. Congratulations to all the winning and shortlisted schools.”

The night also featured a short segment of the Lion King performed by the Disney Theatrical Group.
