KING’S High School and Warwick School have been shortlisted in the prestigious Independent Schools of the Year 2020 Awards.

The awards, run by ‘Independent School Parent’, aim to showcase the educational experience available to students of all backgrounds and recognises the imaginative ways in which independent schools prepare young people for their future lives.

King’s High School has been shortlisted for the ‘Independent Girls’ School of the Year’ award, and Warwick School for the ‘Independent Boys’ School of the Year’ award.

King’s High School joined Warwick School and Warwick Preparatory School at the Myton Road campus in September 2019, bringing all the Warwick Independent Schools Foundation together on to one site. The foundation schools provide education for boys and girls aged three to 18.

Richard Nicholson, who will be taking up the position of foundation principal in September, said: “We are delighted that King’s High and Warwick School have been nominated for these prestigious awards.

“Our innovative and committed staff ensure that our schools are constantly evolving, providing pupils with an outstanding education in an rapidly developing world. It is testament to our exceptional staff, and the experiences and opportunities that they create for our pupils, that we have been shortlisted for these awards.”

The judging panel will be chaired by Dr Helen Wright.

She said: “Great schools believe in their students’ ability to grow and develop and become the best of themselves. The UK’s independent schools are vibrant, exciting places, which are constantly evolving to respond to the needs of their individual students. These highly-regarded awards recognise and celebrate the amazing experiences and opportunities for students in independent schools across the UK.”

The winners will be announced in October.
