Educate Award 2017 winners!

Over 600 guests gathered for the Educate Awards ceremony on Friday 17 November, held at the Liverpool Anglican Cathedral, hosted by broadcaster Simon ‘Rossie’ Ross.

On the night, 21 awards were handed out to schools in Merseyside, Lancashire and Cheshire. A great variety of projects and skills were represented, from entrepreneurial awareness, dazzling stage performances, creative literacy initiatives to inspiring community partnerships.

We were delighted to be announced Winner of the Communication Award at last Friday's prestigious Educate Awards 2017.  We were also shortlisted for two more awards: Spirit of Enterprise and Outstanding Commitment to Sport.

Judges’ comments: “The school has placed a strong emphasis on communication through all channels, reaching parents in every which way possible including a weekly news flash. The app is a truly powerful but also useful medium for parental engagement with the school.”

Kim O’Brien, Editor of Educate Magazine also said “As a school involved in the awards since the very beginning I cannot tell you how wonderful it is to see you walk that red carpet year on year; an amazing testament to all that you do and to a fantastic Liverpool school, Gateacre!”
