The important bits
What is the timeline for the Awards?
We wlll announce the timeline of our Awards in early spring 2024.
Remember, schools don't need to enter our Awards. With our on-the-ground knowledge, we know what amazing things lots of schools are doing, and so all schools are automatically entered. If you’re a school and you’re on our site then we considered you, especially where we’ve seen that you're doing something amazing.
Which schools can enter?
Any independent prep or senior school in the UK or across the globe can enter. However, schools don’t have to enter our Awards. With our on-the-ground knowledge, we know what amazing things lots of schools are doing, and so all schools are automatically entered. If you’re a school and you’re on our site then we considered you, especially where we’ve seen that you're doing something amazing.
Who is doing the judging?
The shortlist and winners will be chosen by our editorial panel, who between them boast over 300 years of visiting independent schools up and down the country and across the globe. Our panel of Talk Education professionals comprises an experienced team of researchers and educational experts, former heads, teachers and advisors, all with their eyes and ears to the ground, constantly involved with schools changing and growing, and always at the forefront of what's new in the world of education. For those schools we haven't visited in person this year, we have done virtual visits; for those we haven’t virtually visited don’t worry, we know about you!
The judges will select the shortlist and finalists. If any judge has a conflict of interest with any particular school, they will not be able to vote on the entry. The judges’ decision will be final and no correspondence will be entered into.
What do I need to do to enter and what can I send in?
For the moment, all you have to do is watch this space. We will be in touch when the Awards officially open.
How many categories can I enter and how much does it cost?
It’s completely FREE to enter and you can enter as many as you like - just complete the form once the Awards open. But if you don't have time, don't worry - we will already be considering you, especially where we’ve seen that you're doing something amazing. We don’t want to add to your marketing pressures and budgets, and we want to celebrate every school - big and small.
How do I know I’ve won?
We will contact all of our shortlisted schools personally and tell them the good news. We’ll also send them some social media artwork so that they can tell their followers and fans that their amazing work has been recognised by educational professionals with an in-depth knowledge of education and schools the world over. We will also be celebrating our winners on our social media channels and on our website.
