THE St Helens Reporter is once again running its hugely popular and prestigious Education Awards, in association with Carmel College.
Over the past few weeks we have been outlining the twelve categories within these awards and inviting YOU to get involved by making nominations.
If you think your secondary school is the best in St Helens, then you must nominate them for the Secondary School of the Year Award, sponsored by the University of Liverpool.
The award will recognise schools for their positive contribution to the community, raising pupil achievement or collaborative work with other schools to raise standards and inspire learning.
2014 winners of this award were Haydock High School. Judges recognised that it has maintained its academic progress and like any family, it cares about its members. The school has many positive connections with the community and is very keen to partner with other agencies to enhance the community.
Once again, the sponsor of this award is the University of Liverpool.
The University of Liverpool is one of the UK’s leading research institutions. It is ranked in the top 1% of higher education institutions worldwide and is a member of the prestigious Russell Group, comprising the leading research universities in the UK.
A truly international institution, the University has over 32,000 students and is popular with students from all over the world, with 7,400 students from 115 countries studying at Liverpool. Associated with no fewer than nine Nobel Laureates, the University is recognised for its high quality teaching and research.
The University consistently ranks at the top of the English Russell Group for achievements in Widening Participation and exceeds its benchmarks for both the recruitment of students from Low Participation Neighbourhoods and State Schools.
The University continues to invest in key aspects of the student experience. The University is investing £600 million in its teaching, research and residential estate over a 10-year period including £250 million in high quality accommodation.
