The Buckinghamshire School Awards 2023

Buckinghamshire Council are hosting the first Buckinghamshire School Awards celebrating the wonderful work our teachers and school staff deliver across the county.

To help celebrate, we are asking all staff and governors across Buckinghamshire to nominate their school heroes in one of eleven award categories.  

Whether you want to celebrate a fantastic teaching colleague, an inspirational senior leadership team or an unsung hero in your school, please nominate and tell us all about the difference that they make to the children and young people across Buckinghamshire.

We are pleased to announce that this year’s awards will be sponsored by Wycombe Wanderers, Pinewood Studios, Bucks Skills Hub with Buckinghamshire Business First, Supply Desk, Bosch, LEAP, The Entertainer and Thakeham. 

Nominations will be open until 5 pm on Friday 28 April 2023.
