Not one, not two but THREE shortlisted categories in the TES Awards for Reed’s
We are thrilled to announce that Reed’s has been shortlisted for three TES 2020 Independent School Awards.
The first is for the Independent-State School Partnership Award which recognises our incredible Outreach and Public Benefit programme, a fundamental part of the School’s core mission and values. Last year saw a record 3,375 children from State schools benefit from these partnerships which are achieved by bringing together Reed’s School, key operational charities, funding from trusts and individuals, and State schools.

We have also been shortlisted for the Sports Award – this recognises that in 2018-2019 we won 16 national titles, 26 of our pupils represented England or GB in their respective sports, and we have built partnerships with professional sports teams across the UK and around the world. However, more importantly, it also recognises that at Reed’s we are most proud of every single pupil who participated in sport, tried something new and stretched their boundaries.
The third award shortlist is for the Best Use of Technology Award which recognises measurable excellence in the use of education technology by a school. Using data analytics technology, adapted and developed here at Reed’s, we have transformed the School’s academic assessment, tracking and reporting into consolidated pupil specific ‘Academic Dashboards’ which provide teachers and senior leaders consolidated analysis on a pupil or cohort’s progress at any given moment. This has proven to be invaluable in helping to translate policy into actions and has had significant and quantifiable benefits to our pupils.
The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on 9th February 2020.
