The Observer & Wigan Evening Post are proud to announce their 7th Education Awards 2021

These awards will celebrate primary and secondary education in the Wigan Borough. Sponsored by Wigan & Leigh College, the awards will showcase and celebrate the very best students, teachers, schools and employees in the area.

The campaign will recognise the achievements that schools and pupils make within the education sector on a daily basis. Each category has its own criteria for nomination, which you can see on these pages. 

It has been a very difficult year for staff and pupils! Therefore we are inviting our readers to be involved and support these awards by nominating worthy candidates.

The awards are a fitting way to celebrate the quality and diversity of education and students that exist across this part of the borough.  The awards are designed not just to reward high achievement, but to also recognise the efforts of all levels and sectors of the education system. 

We want as many nominations as possible so we can honour schools and individuals and celebrate the undoubted young talent that exists in our area but for people to get the recognition they deserve we need you to tell us about them, so please get nominating now and help make our special awards evening an event to be remembered.

Closing date for nominations is Friday 17th May 9am.  All finalists will be invited to a prestigious live virtual awards ceremony on Monday 14th June at 7pm. Our host for the evening is Dave Guest. former Chief Reporter for the BBC North West tonight. 

The awards are open to primary and secondary schools only. Sixth forms and nurseries are not eligible for this competition.
