TES IS Awards Nomination Success!


The most outstanding institutions that the independent sector has to offer have been recognised in the shortlist for the 2021 Tes Independent School Awards.

It's been revealed that Rendcomb College has been shortlisted for the Boarding School of the Year award, and Whole-school Community Initiative of the Year.

Tes editor Jon Severs said: “After a difficult year for all schools, it is an honour to celebrate the Tes Independent School awards, not only to celebrate excellent practice but to ensure that practice is shared far and wide.

We received an unparalleled number of entries this year, which is testament to the great work all have done during the pandemic. The schools that have been shortlisted should be proud - it's a remarkable achievement"

Sadly we cannot hold the awards night in person this year as we had planned. For the very first time, Tes Independent School Awards winners will be announced at a virtual ceremony on Friday 30 April 2021.

Rob Jones, Head of College, stated that "This is fantastic news for our school. It is a wonderful reflection on all at the College for all of their hard work and innovation. Boarding and community spirit are at the heart of what we are about at Rendcomb. I couldn't be more pleased!"
