Giggleswick School shortlisted in prestigious TES School Awards 2023

Giggleswick School is proud to have been shortlisted for ‘Best Use of Technology’ in the TES School Awards 2023.

The prestigious awards, now in their 15th year, recognise the very best that the education sector has to offer. The awards include entrants from UK state and independents across early years, primary and secondary. The awards are a well-respected achievement and are judged by an expert panel comprising school leaders, experts and education researchers.

Sam Hart, Headmaster of Giggleswick School, said:

“Digital skills are crucial for today’s society and we place a very strong emphasis on digital technology and using it to deliver positive life-long educational outcomes for our students. These skills set them apart and give them the best possible start -whatever future career they choose.


We continually invest in developing the digital skills of both students and staff and have introduced many new digital innovations. We are the only Microsoft Showcase School in North Yorkshire. We recently launched our first e-sports team who competed in the British E-Sports School Championship. We are also building worldwide networks through school projects working with other young people online in America, India and Sweden.”

Tes Editor and chief judge of the Tes Schools Awards Jon Severs said:

“This year has seen some incredibly high quality entries. So every teacher and school who has been named in this shortlist should be very proud – it’s a fantastic achievement.

“We are looking forward to showcasing, as we do every year, just how vital our education professionals are to every facet of this country. Teachers, leaders and support staff all play such an important role in schools: this is our chance to say thank you

The winners will be announced on Friday 23 June 2023 at a gala ceremony at London’s Grosvenor Park Hotel.
