Whitgift School is delighted to have been awarded the title of Independent Boys’ School of the Year 2020 at the Independent School of the Year Awards Ceremony.

The school qualified as a finalist in early September 2020, after being shortlisted in July. When announcing the award, Jim Massey added it was “a compelling entry that radiated the school’s inclusive and collaborative values in the context of an all boys’ school.”

Headmaster Chris Ramsey said, “We are delighted to have been awarded the title of Independent Boys’ School of the Year 2020. We were amongst some exceptionally worthy finalists and are humbled that the judging panel selected us. This is a wonderful acknowledgement of the inspiring work of everyone, from the students and staff who make our school what it is, to our hugely supportive parents and alumni.”

The awards scheme is run by the Independent School Parent portfolio of magazines and celebrates the success stories of schools and their students across the independent education sector in the UK.

The judging panel was chaired by Dr Helen Wright, international education adviser and past Vice Chair of the ISC, supported by a panel of judges which included leading Head Teachers and representatives of several professional associations.
