SPIRITS are high at Warwick School after it was named Independent Boys’ School of the Year.

The school was awarded the accolade at the prestigious Independent School of the Year Awards, hosted in London recently.

The Independent School of the Year Awards are designed to highlight the “extraordinary student experience” that the UK’s top independent schools provide, whilst also showcasing and celebrating their individual successes.

This year’s winners were chosen from over 700 nominations across 22 awards categories.

And the judges were impressed with Warwick School’s ability to combine pride in its long history and the traditional values it holds with a forward-thinking approach that prepares pupils for life in a changing world.

Headmaster, James Barker and Senior Deputy Head, Simon Chapman travelled to London for the first awards ceremony to be held in person since before the pandemic.

Mr Barker said: ‘The events of the last few years have raised a number of unprecedented challenges for our pupils and wider school community. That we have been recognised for such an award is a testimony to the outstanding professionals that our staff are and the community that is Warwick School.

“To be named Independent Boys’ School of the Year is a real cause for celebration and the school are incredibly proud to be able to hold this title.”

The nomination recognised the ways in which Warwick School’s curriculum is tailored to best suit the ways most boys learn, while the co-curricular opportunities on offer are structured to inspire imagination, develop confidence and abilities, and provide meaningful social, mental, and physical experiences for all pupils.

Judges also noted how they recognise that out in the world, boys may experience certain pressures, stresses, and stereotypes specific to their gender, and applauded the school’s work to instil their own resilience in the face of such challenges – examples include the Wellbeing Hub, which offers a safe space and access to wellbeing professionals for all boys at any time of the day.

Mr Barker added he would to thank staff for the hard work which has contributed to winning this award.

“Thank you personally, on behalf of the school and most importantly on behalf of the pupils who leave this place with not only outstanding qualifications but a bucket load of memories and experiences which will carry them through life. We are making a real difference to the young people entrusted to our care.”
