The most outstanding individuals and institutions that the independent sector has to offer have been recognised in the shortlist for the 2019 Tes Independent School Awards.
It's been revealed that Bablake Junior School has been shortlisted for the Wellbeing initiative of the year award.
Tes editor Ann Mroz said: “Independent education in this country is truly world class. It’s one of our great success stories. And those shortlisted for the Tes Independent School Awards are the crème de la crème.
“We received a record number of entries this year and the standard is the highest yet, so to be shortlisted is an extraordinary achievement for any school.”
Headmaster Neil Price was proud to receive news of the shortlist and commented on the school’s involvement in the initiative, “At Bablake Junior School we wanted to understand our community better. We have been working with the organisation Intelligent Behaviour Analytics (IBA) to enhance our interpersonal relationships. By seeking to understand ourselves better, we understand each other better too. Our work with IBA has been a most positive journey and a catalyst that has led to personal growth, richer communication and even greater pastoral harmony.
The winners will be revealed at a gala awards evening in February 2019
