The World’s Best School Prizes 2023 are now accepting applications. The World’s Best School Prizes highlight the achievements of schools that are reshaping the lives of the next generation and significantly enhancing their local communities. They acknowledge the huge contribution that education makes to society’s advancement, especially in the aftermath of COVID.
A project of BVU Ventures Ltd, doing business as T4 Education, The World’s Best School Prizes was created with the intention of recognizing excellence in schools through a prize competition structure.
Schools that have gained proficiency in five key categories are given The World’s Best School Prizes.
Outstanding systems, practices, and performance influencing the lives of their students and the community as a whole will be displayed by winning schools.
- Community Collaboration: This Prize recognizes schools that have collaborated and
developed partnerships with their community to meet both children’s needs and those of
the wider society around them.
- Environmental Action: This Prize recognizes the importance of schools and their students
and teachers in environmental advocacy and change making.
- Innovation: This Prize recognizes both technologies and pedagogies that break from
tradition in their context to impact and improve teaching and learning.
- Overcoming Adversity: This Prize recognizes schools that have beaten the odds to support and develop children’s learning and well being in the face of huge challenges.
- Supporting Healthy Lives: This Prize recognizes schools that go above and beyond to
support students physical and mental health and work to develop healthy habits,
behaviours, knowledge, and skills.
