Chiswick School has been shortlisted for the TES school award for the Secondary School of the Year. The school was also shortlisted for a further two awards including The Excellence in Creative Arts award and Tommy Robinson (Creative and Performing Arts Coordinator) has been shortlisted for Subject Lead of the Year.  

Headteacher, Laura Ellener, said; To have been shortlisted for a second time is a real honour. I am so pleased that all the staff, students and the families at Chiswick School have been recognised for their achievements. The shortlisting looks beyond our excellent academic results and encompasses the wider life of the school, the incredible community that supports us and the opportunities provided to the amazing young people that come to Chiswick School.” 

The category of ‘Secondary School of the Year’ recognises schools that have had exceptional performance in the previous 12 months or experienced rapid improvement, and those that are maintaining continued excellence over a longer period. The judges look for more than academic achievement when shortlisting for this category; schools need to demonstrate innovation, imagination and efforts to develop children in ways that go beyond the league tables.  

Councillor Lily Bath, Cabinet member for Children, Learning and Employment, said: “Huge congratulations to Chiswick School; the student, staff and parents on the nominations. Being shortlisted for not one but multiple awards is testament to all the incredible work they do, going above and beyond.  

“I am incredibly proud of all our schools in Hounslow and I am pleased that schools are getting the recognition they very much deserve.”  

The TES Schools Awards Winners will be announced on Friday 23 June at a gala ceremony at London’s Grosvenor Park Hotel.
