Top of the class! Sefton Schools scoop awards at the Educate Awards 2017

SCHOOLS in Sefton have been honoured at the prestigious Educate Awards ceremony that took place on Friday, 17 November 2017. Nearly 600 guests gathered for the Educate Awards ceremony held at the Liverpool Anglican Cathedral, hosted by broadcaster Simon 'Rossie' Ross.

The awards, in partnership with Copyrite Systems and Ricoh, is now in its 6th year and is the biggest celebration of education in the North West. On the night, 21 awards were handed out to Schools in the Liverpool City Region, Lancashire and Cheshire.

The opening act was a 300-strong Super Choir led by musical director Steve Cook from Formby High School. Participating Schools included:- Formby High School; Freshfield Primary School; Redgate Primary School; Saughall All Saints CofE Primary School; St Anne Stanley Primary School and Valewood Primary School.

Guests were also treated to music from St John Rigby College students; a special performance of Beauty and the Beast Jr by Archbishop Blanch School; a fashion show by Holly Lodge Girls' College and a spoken word performance by 5 students from The Hollins Technology College.

2 Sefton Schools were among the winners on the night. Netherton Moss Primary School fought off stiff competition and won the 'Outstanding Teaching of Life Skills' award for its focus on teaching children how to cook.

The project explored many areas of cooking, including the financial and economical skills related to food, the growing of vegetables in their own School allotment and hosting food events for the local community. Central to Netherton's work is its cooking space, christened:- 'Moss Munch' by the children.

Judges commented:- "What a fantastic project teaching a wide range of life skills. Using cooking as the main ingredient to teach pupils all about financial and economical skills. The School even has its own allotment which is a big hit in the School community!"

Formby High School took home the Most Inspirational Secondary School award, thanks to its impressive academic performance; extra curricular lessons; fundraising initiatives and experiences students can take part in. 

In the words of the School:- "Whether it is the students, the staff, the parents or our community partners, Formby High School is home to a diverse family of people, who possess a shared vision to create a unique, world class learning environment to nurture and showcase everyone!"

Kim O'Brien, founder of the Educate Awards, says:- "The Educate Awards is an opportunity to shine a spotlight on the teaching profession and say thank you to the remarkable individuals who improve the life chances of our children. We are proud to host this event which champions the creativity, diversity and dedication of teachers, School support stars, Schools and colleges in the Liverpool City Region, Cheshire and Lancashire. Congratulations to all the winners, runners-up and shortlisted Schools."

The winners were chosen by an esteemed judging panel which includes:- Michelle Dow, managing director of All About STEM; James Tartt, Merseyside track athlete and architect; Radio City breakfast host Leanne Campbell; Councillor Gary Millar, Assistant Mayor and Mayoral lead for business and international trade; Chris Walker; Lesley Martin Wright, chief executive of Knowsley Chamber; Fiona Barnet, director of The Foundry Agency; Andrew Pimbley of Wirral's Claremont Farm; Sue Cronin, head of teacher education at Liverpool Hope University and the education team at the respected Everyman and Playhouse Theatres.
