The Sports Department is shortlisted for a national award

It's been revealed that Redmaids’ High School has been shortlisted for the Sports Award in the 2019 Times Education Supplement’s (Tes) Independent School Awards which were published on Friday 16 November.

This award will recognise a school that demonstrates commitment to excellence and participation in school sport, and in promoting health, wellbeing and exercise among its pupils.

Mrs Tobias commented, “We are delighted to be recognised in these prestigious awards for our outstanding sports provision.

“We have made a significant investment in sport during the last five years.

Most recently, in 2017, we bought the former AXA sports ground near Cribbs Causeway and have plans in place to significantly redevelop the 16-acre site ready for use in late 2020. So, watch this space!”

Claire Maggs, Director of Sport says, “As well as having an extensive programme which makes sport accessible and enjoyable for everyone, we also focus on achievement. Our elite athletes enjoy great success across a wide range of sports in county, regional and national competitions.

“This nomination is testament to the hard work, commitment and enthusiasm of both the staff and the students here.”

Speaking of the 2019 awards, Tes editor Ann Mroz said, “Independent education in this country is truly world class. It’s one of our great success stories. And those shortlisted for the Tes Independent School Awards are the crème de la crème.

“We received a record number of entries this year and the standard is the highest yet, so to be shortlisted is an extraordinary achievement for any school.”

The winners will be revealed at a gala awards evening at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane, London on Friday 1 February 2019.
