Two National Award Nominations for Excellence & Innovation
Thorpe Hall School has been shortlisted by the Independent Schools Association (ISA) for two national awards. The calibre of the work of staff to support mental health and wellbeing across the whole school has been recognised, along with the school’s exceptional academic provision in Senior School specifically.
The ISA Awards is a prestigious annual event that celebrates success and recognises the breadth of quality and provision in independent education across the country. Thorpe Hall is a regular in the ISA Awards finalists’ line-up. In 2016, the school was the overall winner of the award for excellence and innovation in Senior School and won again in 2017 for exemplary initiatives demonstrated in Early Years education.
Headteacher Andrew Hampton said, “I am utterly delighted that Thorpe Hall’s provision in the Senior School and our whole-school work on mental health and wellbeing has been recognised by the Independent School’s Association with these two shortlistings. As Headteacher, I am proud and privileged to lead a very talented staff team who work tirelessly to provide the very best educational opportunities for our pupils. At a time when life’s stresses seem to be increasingly challenging, it is wonderful to be recognised as being at the forefront of initiatives to promote better mental health and wellbeing in society. While Thorpe Hall School is well known locally for its excellence, it is exciting to be acknowledged as innovative and ground-breaking on the national stage as well.”
The winners are awarded at a prestigious ceremony, which is held at the ISA’s Autumn Study Conference in November.
