The Awards

The Educate Awards was founded by Kim O’Brien in 2012 and it is the one night of the year where the excellence of schools in Merseyside, Cheshire, Lancashire and Greater Manchester is celebrated and rewarded in a unique fashion. Now celebrating its 10th year, the amount of nominations submitted for the awards year upon year continues to grow at an exponential rate.

A total of 21 awards are contended for via nominations which are then shortlisted by a panel of judges. The shortlist is released prior to the event with the winner being told of their success during a prestigious and glamorous event in one of Liverpool’s finest venues, the Liverpool Cathedral on 19th November 2021.

The event includes a pre-dinner champagne reception, a 3 course dinner, an extensive programme of entertainment and of course the awards ceremony itself. Each winner receives an award presented by one of the sponsors and their names entered onto the Educate Awards website winners’ page for all to see.
