Melland High School Shortlisted In TES Awards

Melland High School has been shortlisted by the Times Educational Supplement (TES) Awards for its exceptional performance as a special educational needs school.

Celebrating their seventh year, the TES Awards recognise teachers and support staff who constantly strive to advance current levels of education through commitment, quality and innovation. Melland has been recognised in the Alternative Provision category (formerly SEN).

Melland High School is a member of the Bright Futures Educational Trust, which operates eight schools across the North West and is dedicated to providing every child with the opportunity to reach their potential, regardless of their background.

The school’s commitment to providing a high-class education was highlighted recently by Ofsted who deemed the school ‘Outstanding’. Both Ofsted and the TES Awards judges were impressed by the school’s commitment to multimedia learning, particularly the use of augmented reality which has increased independence and self-confidence amongst the students.

Speaking about the shortlisting, Sue Warner, Principal of Melland High School, explained: “We are extremely pleased to have been recognised by TES for all the hard work which makes Melland such a fantastic school to be a part of. We have an exceptional team of dedicated staff who are devoted to ensuring our students have a tailored and enjoyable education that will prepare them for the difficulties of living with their disabilities in the wider world.”

CEO of Bright Futures Educational Trust, Dame Dana Ross-Wawrzynski, said:  “We are delighted that Melland High School has been recognised by the TES awards for their quality of teaching.  I’d like to congratulate Sue and her team on the fantastic learning environment they have developed and we look forward to hearing the final result.”

The winners will be revealed on Friday 19th June at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane, London.
