Awards success for Cheltenham school

St Edward's School has just been recognised in the Pearson National Teaching Awards.

This builds on the Cheltenham school's success last week, when it was named the UK independent school that had made the most progress at the UK Education Business Awards. At the same event, headmaster Mr Matthew Burke was named as one of the top three UK secondary heads.

Coinciding with #Thankateacher day, the school has been celebrating its highly commended status in partnership and community work, as well as the headmaster, again securing recognition of his leadership of the school.

The school's partnership work this year has continued with the Cheltenham Education Partnership, working with all senior schools in the town, as well as supporting and working with various local charities, including CCP and Maggie's. The headmaster even took part in the CCP Big Sleep Out earlier this year and raised just over £4,000 for the charity.

Matthew Burke, headmaster of St Edward's School, said: "It is an honour and privilege to be able to lead the St Ed's community, but this can only be done thanks to the phenomenal team of staff, students and parents who support us in all that we do.

"Whilst it is lovely to have individual recognition, it really is a team effort and no community can operate successfully without everyone pulling together. Building on success in TES, ISA and Education Awards last year, it is pleasing to follow these up and I hope evidence of our constant approach of trying to better ourselves and provide the best environment for our staff to work and our students to learn and have fun."

A new library at St Edward's opens this week and plans for sport, art and technology are to be announced soon.
