Handcross Park are crowned winners at the 2019 Independent Schools of the Year Awards

Pupils and staff at Handcross Park are celebrating after winning the PREP SCHOOL OF THE YEAR Award at a glittering awards ceremony in central London last night. Praised by judges for their all-round offering and focus on the child, including their excellent leadership training for all pupils.

Handcross Park beat stiff competition from entrants from across the UK.

Richard Brown Headmaster of Handcross Park said

“Today I feel an incredibly proud Headmaster. We are thrilled to have received this award and we are delighted with the glowing feedback we received from the judges. This accolade reflects the hard work and dedication of both our brilliant staff and our fabulous pupils. We are delighted that our continual commitment to ensure we provide the very best educational experience there is to offer has been recognised. We look forward now to sharing this success with the whole school community”

The awards ask to see evidence of success stories that feature both individuals and innovative practice, for a judging panel that is made up of heads, governors, parents and representatives of membership associations from across the Independent sector.

David Moncrieff, who runs the awards said

“Following the huge success of the inaugural competition last year, which saw more than 250 school nominations entered, we are thrilled to have surpassed that figure for Independent Schools of the Year 2019. The awards were once again designed with the pupil experience at their heart and to provide schools with a platform to showcase their stories of innovation and success. The judges had a tough job on their hands picking the winners from the shortlisted entries, but the schools we have seen tonight (7th Oct) were hugely deserving.”
