International School Awards 2021

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, due to the impact of COVID-19 on schools throughout the world, many initiatives will have been developed to respond to the crisis. As a result, the judges will be looking for initiatives that show innovation and the potential for change through adversity.

Winners will be announced and recognised at a virtual awards ceremony on Monday 18th January 2021

The International School Awards are hosted by ISC Research with the support of International School Leader Magazine.
