HSOG shortlisted for Independent Schools of the Year awards

We are thrilled to announce that The High School of Glasgow has been shortlisted for two Independent Schools of the Year awards!

This is the first time the High School has entered the awards and we have been nominated for:

  • Independent School of the Year for Student Wellbeing
  • Innovation Award for an Outstanding New Initiative

The Independent Schools of the Year awards are designed to showcase schools’ success stories and celebrate the extraordinary and compelling student experience they provide.

This year there are 22 award categories designed to reflect the breadth and diversity of life in the independent education sector.

Finalists will be announced on Wednesday 7 September, with the winners revealed at an awards ceremony in October.

A record number of nominations was received this year and Chair of the judging panel, Dr Helen Wright, was thrilled with the quality. Dr Wright said:

It has been truly wonderful to receive so many nominations from independent schools which showcase transformative and innovative projects that are underway across the breadth of the nation from Cardiff to Norwich.”

Commenting on the nominations, Rector, John O’Neill said:

We are incredibly proud to have been shortlisted in two categories at this year’s Independent Schools of the Year awards. These UK-wide awards attract top schools across the country and it is fantastic to have been recognised alongside them.

Both categories are particularly meaningful to us: we put pupil wellbeing at our heart, I am a firm believer than in order to do well, you must be well and this is the bedrock of our community. In addition, we have a long legacy stretching back almost 900 years and during this time the School has evolved and innovated to become the place of learning it is today. To be recognised for the Innovation Award is a true honour.

We look forward to the announcement of finalists in September and wish all those nominated the very best of luck! Sursum Semper!”
