Celebrating excellence: the 2024 International School Awards

Oct 3, 2023 | Good practice

As the year unfolds and educators around the world embark on a journey of excellence, the judging process for the 2024 International School Awards draws to a close. The International School Awards (ISAs) stand as a beacon of innovation, transformation, and the collective pursuit of educational distinction. With the ISA announcement in January 2024 rapidly approaching, we extend a warm invitation for you to join us in the lively discussions surrounding the remarkable school initiatives submitted for consideration.

A holistic approach to recognising excellence

In preparation for 2024, the International School Awards embarked on a transformative journey this year, shifting from multiple isolated awards categories towards a holistic evaluation of the submitted initiatives. These initiatives are grounded in foundations of multicultural understanding, diversity, equity, inclusion and justice, as well as the incorporation of various United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

In a novel approach, applications have been assessed within tuition fee brackets, providing each school with an equitable opportunity to shine based on their expectations and budgetary capabilities. This new format allows us to recognise and celebrate achievement across all aspects of education, from cultural inclusivity to contributions driving sustainability.

Each initiative not only embodies these fundamental values, but also serves as a central pillar in the school’s ongoing journey of improvement and innovation. You can learn more about the new format of the 2024 International School Awards here .

Save the date!

Join us in counting down to our exciting announcement, where we will unveil the 2024 International School Award winners on Wednesday 24th January 2024. We eagerly anticipate the recognition of outstanding schools that have submitted their initiatives. This momentous occasion promises to shine a spotlight on the remarkable efforts and innovation within the global education community.

Join the conversation

We want to emphasise the importance of community participation and engagement, and therefore we encourage all applicants and educators to join in the discussions on the ISC Research Community. Sharing your initiatives isn’t only about recognition; it’s also about inspiring and benefitting others within the global education community. Join the conversation on the ISC Research community, where you can learn more about school initiatives and share your own achievements and developments. Find out more and register here.

A collective endeavour to enhance education

By actively participating and engaging in discussions surrounding these newly transitioned awards, schools of all sizes can come together to share initiatives that address pressing topics today. These initiatives integrate a profound and meaningful element into the education of our youth. Through collaboration and the exchange of ideas, we can learn from one another, enhance creativity and foster growth, strengthening our global education community and amplifying its impact.

The 2024 International School Awards is partnered with NoTosh, Kognity and Pearson.
