Formby High School is delighted to confirm that it has been shortlisted for not one but TWO Tes Awards: ‘Secondary School of the Year’ and ‘Creative School of the Year’ 2021.

Tes editor Jon Severs said: “It is more important this year than ever before to celebrate the fantastic work schools do, because in the past 12 months they have gone above and beyond to ensure pupils were able to be educated and be kept safe in extraordinary circumstances. We were inundated with entries that demonstrated just how hard the pandemic made the work of schools, and just how amazing the response from staff has been. We are looking forward to showcasing, as we do every year, just how vital our education professionals are to every facet of this country. “

After a very successful online awards ceremony last year, we are once again holding this year’s awards ceremony virtually.  Winners will be announced on Friday 25 June 2021.  To see the full list of who’s in the running, pick up a copy of this week’s Tes, or visit
