School of the week award

School of the Week

Our School of the Week award aims to celebrate those schools finding new and exciting ways to encourage learning.

This could be through a school trip, engaging in a school-wide project, fundraising or pulling off a performance or event. It could even be something as simple as making changes to students’ learning environment to boost motivation and increase productivity.

This week marked the beginning of many students working remotely from home, whilst a small number of children will continue their studies in school. We have selected some of our favourite posts shared by schools this week, demonstrating their positive and creative approach to pieces of work.

This week’s school of the week is…

St Mary’s College, who launched their very own quiz night #StMarysFamilyQuiz, a fun way to engage with all of their students on Twitter! The tie-breaker was decided with the ultimate question of ‘How long is the Great Wall of China?’ Congratulations to the winner, we’re very impressed with your China knowledge!

This week’s runners up in school of the week are…

Barnsole Primary School, who are sharing a daily bedtime story for their pupils, read by a new member of staff each day. Such a lovely way to maintain the connection between the children and their teachers.
