International School Awards

Call for nominations

Nominations for the International School Awards 2022, hosted by ISC Research are open until 30th September. Anne Keeling reports.

The Awards

The annual International School Awards, hosted by ISC Research, have become an established and much anticipated feature of the international school calendar, with nominations currently open for 2022.

The Awards provide international schools with an opportunity to share the initiatives and best practice developed at their school and implemented over the last year. Over the years there have been a range of inspirational entries, and now the search is underway for the 2022 Award winners. Winners from previous years have included a very wide range of international schools, both large and small, schools with a long history in international education, and many that have been founded much more recently.

Categories for entry

In 2022 awards will be made in the following categories:

  1. Community building
  2. Community wellbeing
  3. Digital technology in learning
  4. Diversity, equity, inclusion and justice (DEIJ)
  5. Environmental
  6. Ethical values education
  7. Innovation and creativity in learning
  8. International impact
  9. Pathways to continued and continuing education
  10. Safeguarding
  11. Strategic leadership
  12. Teaching and learning.

The winner of each category is then automatically forwarded to be considered for the overall International School of the Year award, won in 2021 by Branksome Hall, Asia.
