Formby High School is the WINNER of 'Most Inspirational' at regional educational awards


Formby High School has been honoured at the prestigious Educate Awards ceremony last night (Friday 16 November).


The awards, in partnership with Copyrite Systems and Ricoh, is now in its seventh year and is the largest education awards in the North West. Over 600 guests gathered for the Educate Awards ceremony held at the Liverpool Anglican Cathedral, hosted by broadcaster, Simon ‘Rossie’ Ross.


On the night, 21 awards were handed out to schools in the Liverpool City Region, Lancashire, Cheshire and Greater Manchester.


One of the evening’s top awards went to Formby High School. Its Sixth Form scooped the Most Inspirational 16-18 Education Provider Award, fighting off competition from Liverpool’s Gateacre School, Middleton’s Cardinal Langley RC and All Saints Sixth Form College in Liverpool.

With excellent A-Level and BTEC results, a wide range of extra-curricular activities and an enrichment programme on offer, students are given the right balance of independent learning, specialist teaching and access to support and guidance whilst studying at the ‘small but perfectly formed’ sixth form.


The evening also saw the premiere of the Educate Awards Super Choir Children in Need music video, ‘We are all Stars’, which Formby High’s Steve Cook and Gary Heatherington co-wrote. The recording features the voices of over 300 students from local schools, with all proceeds from the sales going to the charity.


Kim O’Brien, founder of the Educate Awards, says: “Many congratulations to Formby High School on their fantastic award win, and for helping us form this year’s Super Choir for Children in Need."


“We are so proud to host an event which champions the creativity, diversity and dedication of teachers, school support stars, schools and colleges in the Liverpool City Region, Cheshire, Lancashire and Greater Manchester."


“It’s been an exceptional year of entries, so many congratulations to all the winners, runners-up and finalists for 2018.”


St Oswald’s CE Primary, Bishop David Sheppard CE Primary, Netherton Moss Primary, Hillside High School and Summerhill Primary were all finalists on the evening.
