ENTRIES are flooding in to the Wirral Globe Schools Awards 2016 - celebrating all that’s good in the borough’s schools.
The awards aim to seek out the best pupils, schools, teachers and other staff and, at the same time, highlight innovation and best practice across the area.
Wirral has some fantastic schools, rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted and producing excellent exam results year after year.
And most of us can remember individual teachers who made a real difference to our school days.
Entries are invited from teachers, parents, governors, pupils and anyone with knowledge of a particular school.
All schools are welcome to enter – secondary, primary and specialist – as long as they are based in Wirral.
Somnath Saha, chief executive of Typhoo Tea, said: “We at Typhoo Tea Ltd are delighted to be the main sponsors of the Wirral Globe School Awards.
“We believe this is an excellent opportunity to give recognition for the hard work and dedication from all teachers, support staff and all other contributors to our local education establishments and equally to the students themselves.
“We have an excellent local education system producing talented individuals, which a large majority of our employees here at Typhoo are an example of.
“We are passionate in ensuring we continue to support our local education establishments as much as possible to enable the current and future youth to continue to excel and contribute to improve the skills set in the Wirral and Merseyside region.”
