Wellington College Shortlisted For Two Prestigious TES Schools Awards 2023

Published by Wellington College on Thursday 8th of June 2023

Wellington College in Berkshire has been shortlisted for ‘Excellence in Creative Arts’ and ‘Best Use of Technology’ in the TES Schools Awards 2023. The Oscars of the UK education sector celebrate excellence in state and independent schools.


Master of Wellington College, James Dahl said: “We are delighted to be shortlisted in two Tes Schools Awards categories that reflect the innovation and creativity that lie at the heart of teaching at Wellington. The arts are woven into every aspect of school life and we are increasingly finding new ways to use cutting-edge technology to provide our young people with the knowledge, skills and experiences to shape a better world.”


For the Excellence in the Creative Arts award, Wellington is nominated for The Festival of Musical Theatre which was created and organised by pupils Ollie Perry and Jasper Kirkby, to raise money for Autistica and the Cerebral Palsy Trust. Ollie and Jasper wanted to fundraise in memory of Ollie’s brother, Charlie. Wellington partnered with local state schools – St Crispin’s, Garth Hill College and Edgbarrow – to perform the concert which raised £5,270 for the charities.


Wellington received the Artsmark Platinum Award in March in recognition of the outstanding range of arts opportunities for pupils and the impact of the Wellington College Arts Fund.


For Best Use of Technology, Wellington is nominated for their Big Gold Box project, a fully immersive portal packed with AV technology that allows pupils to have transformative conversations and experiences with other communities from around the world including Rwanda, India, Mexico and Palestine. The College shares access to the portal with eight of its partner schools, including local state schools such as Bohunt, King’s Academy Easthampstead Park and Sandhurst School.


Tes editor and chief judge of the Tes Schools Awards Jon Severs said: “With these awards we honour the education community, whom we have served for over 112 years. 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.”


The Tes Schools Awards Winners will be announced on Friday 23rd June at a gala ceremony at London’s Grosvenor Park Hotel.
