Contenders for the Tes Schools Awards have been revealed – with London South East Academies Trust being shortlisted in the Trust Team of the Year category.

Dubbed the ‘Oscars of education’, this prestigious awards programme celebrates the best of education across the UK; from state and independent schools, across early years settings, primary and secondary.

The shortlist was compiled by a panel of judges, including school leaders and other education experts. The schools and teachers they chose showcase the best of education across the sector within 21 award categories, covering all areas of school education.
