The Echo have announced the shortlist for this years Schools Awards and two local schools have made the list.
A panel of judges examined scores of entries before whittling them down to just a handful of exceptional nominations in each of the 11 categories.
The finalists have been invited to celebrate their achievements at a special event at Liverpool John Moores University on Tuesday, June 27, hosted by Radio City’s Leanne Campbell.
The Hope Academy and Mill Green School have been shortlisted in the Secondary School of the Year category alongside Wirral Grammar School for Girls.
John Thompson, the ECHO’s Head of Editorial Partnerships, said: “The many entries sent into the judges reveal an extraordinary number of inspiring stories and characters in Merseyside’s schools.
“They are an important reminder of the wonderful, passion-fuelled and professional hard work that goes on in schools on a daily basis.
“We hope the awards help to shine a light on the many leaders, teachers, support staff and students who help shape young lives – giving them the best possible opportunity to fulfil their potential, and help provide the life lessons they need to get on in the years ahead.”
