The Buckinghamshire School Awards 2024

Following the success of the inaugural School Awards in 2023, Buckinghamshire Council are pleased to launch the second Buckinghamshire School Awards celebrating the wonderful work our teachers, school staff and governors deliver across the county. To help celebrate, we are asking all staff and governors across Buckinghamshire to nominate their heroes in one of ten 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 Bosch, Buckinghamshire New University, HYPNOS, LEAP, Stoke Park, Supply Desk, The Entertainer, the Rothschild Foundation and Wycombe Swan.

Nominations will be open until 5pm on Thursday 28 March 2023.
