King’s named finalists in national school awards

Worcester Editorial 28th Sep, 2023   0

KING’S Worcester’s co-educational provision has been recognised for the second year running in the prestigious Independent School Awards.

The school has reached the final of the Independent School of the Year Awards 2023, which showcase the very best of independent school education.

The highly-regarded annual awards, which received more than 1,000 entries from UK independent schools, celebrate the extraordinary student experiences provided over the last year.

All three of the King’s Schools, King’s Worcester and King’s Hawford and King’s St Alban’s Prep Schools, were shortlisted in July for a total of four awards, and King’s Worcester has now been named as finalists for the second year running in the Co-education Independent School of the Year categories.

King’s sits alongside some of the most highly-regarded leading independent boarding schools including Brighton College, Charterhouse and Royal Hospital School, and are the only day school to appear in the final.

The news is another fantastic achievement for King’s Worcester, alongside the recognition for a second year in the Sunday Times Top 10 West Midlands Independent Secondary School league.

Gareth Doodes, headmaster at King’s Worcester, said: “This is outstanding news for the start of our new academic year.

“We were over the moon earlier in the summer to hear all three schools had been shortlisted in many categories, so this news our Senior School, King’s Worcester is in the final is truly thrilling.

“It is a great tribute to our ethos of inclusion and empowerment that our schools, staff and pupils have been recognized at a national level for our impressive co-educational provision.

“We are honoured our inspiring and well-rounded provision has brought us to the final selection.

The winners of the Independent Schools of the Year 2023 Awards will be announced at an awards ceremony in October.
