Bede's Senior School

Bede’s Senior School has been shortlisted for the Times Educational Supplement (Tes) Excellence in Creative Arts Award 2024. The best schools across the country have been shortlisted in this year’s Tes Schools Awards. The awards have been dubbed the ‘Oscars of education’, a prestigious awards programme which celebrates the best of education across the UK.

These awards recognise the very best teachers and schools from UK state and independent schools, across early years settings, primary and secondary. The shortlist was compiled by a panel of expert judges, including school leaders and experts. The schools and teachers they chose showcase the best of education across the sector within 21 award categories, covering all areas of school education.

Bede’s Senior School has been recognised for its outstanding Performing Arts Faculty, offering one of the most diverse and distinguished programmes for pupils who are passionate about performing arts. Bede’s offers a wide range of opportunities for pupils to develop and showcase their talents in drama, music, dance or even behind-the-scenes on both local and international platforms

Jon Severs, Editor of Tes Magazine said, “Congratulations to all the shortlisted entries – the standard was so high this year despite the challenges schools face. It is critical we celebrate excellence and share it widely so we can ensure that the fantastic work happening in education is properly recognised.”

“We are incredibly proud to be shortlisted for the Tes Excellence in Creative Arts Award,” said Peter Goodyer, Headmaster at Bede’s School. “This recognition is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our pupils and staff who continually strive for excellence in the arts. This nomination reinforces our School’s commitment to providing a creative and inspiring environment for our young people to develop their talents and achieve their potential.”

Winners will be announced on 21 June at a glittering gala awards evening at the Grosvenor Hotel, Park Lane, in London.
