Teach Secondary Awards 2021 finalists announced

Nominations for the 2021 Teach Primary Awards have now closed, and we are delighted to reveal our finalists…

  • Teach Secondary Awards 2021 finalists announced

Spanning 10 categories, our final set of shortlists brings together a wide variety of innovative resources – from impressive assessment and CPD packages, to helpful SEND support and unique lesson activities.

In the wake of the upheavals caused by COVID-19, we’ve also introduced a new ‘remote learning’ category.

After what’s been a deeply strange and unsettled year for everyone, we’re very grateful indeed to everyone who entered – a huge thank you to all, and congratulations to our finalists. You can find a full listing below.

Our finalists will now be assessed by an expert panel of judges made up of education practitioners, as well as specialists in a number of different fields, including school business (Hilary Goldsmith), assessment (Michael Chiles) and SEND (John Galloway). 

Their final verdicts will be unveiled this October in the print edition of Teach Secondary magazine, where we’ll be showcasing the five-, four- and three-star winners in each category.

To all those who submitted nominations – many thanks again for taking part. And to our finalists – the very best of luck!

If you have any queries about this year’s Teach Secondary Awards, don’t hesitate to get in touch with the team – email Teach Secondary editor Callum Fauser at [email protected].
