Thurrock's education awards celebrate excellence in the borough's schools. They recognise the importance of education as the foundation for a good quality of life and future success.
There are 14 award categories for teachers, head teachers, support staff, teams, governors and trusts that have gone the extra mile in sharing their effort, enthusiasm and talent.
We welcome nominations from parents, pupils, colleagues, providers, partners and all involved with education in Thurrock.
The closing date for nominations was Thursday 4 October 2018.
The awards will be presented on the evening of Thursday 22 November 2018 at The Civic Hall in Blackshots Lane, Grays, RM16 2JU.
All shortlisted nominators and nominees will enter a prize draw – to take place during the awards ceremony – for a 15-day cruise for 2 people, from Tilbury to the Canary Islands and Madeira, departing on Sunday 11 August 2019, donated by Cruise & Maritime Voyages.
