Celebrating excellence in education
Thurrock's education awards celebrate excellence in the borough's early years, school and post-16 education. They recognise the importance of education as the foundation for a good quality of life and future success.
There are 11 award categories for early years staff, teachers, support staff, teams, head teachers, governors and trusts that have gone the extra mile in sharing their effort, enthusiasm and talent.
Parents, pupils, colleagues, providers, partners and all involved with education in Thurrock are invited to make a nomination.
Winners for the 2022 awards were announced on Friday 8 July 2022.
Sponsors make this event possible and join us each year to honour the exceptional teaching professionals, early years practitioners, governors and support staff across Thurrock.
