Governing boards and clerks make a vast and valuable contribution to the education of young people. Our biennial awards celebrate the important role of governance volunteers and professionals, the only national honours to recognise some of the quarter of a million people governing in schools in England.

Our most recent awards were held in May 2019 and recognised achievements in four categories:

  • Outstanding governing board in a single school
  • Outstanding governing board in a group of schools
  • Outstanding vision and strategy
  • Outstanding clerk to a governing board

Our next round of awards are scheduled for September 2021 and nominations will open in January 2021.
