Congratulations to the shortlisted schools 

The International School Awards celebrate learning, teaching, community, wellbeing, leadership and strategic initiatives at international schools. They provide the opportunity for international schools to share best practice, creative endeavours, community participation and innovation.

This year we received 264 eligible applications from international schools in 62 countries. The judges considered the range of applications to be exceptional and so impressive considering the challenges for schools throughout 2020. We would like to thank every international school that submitted an application.
