The Academy Awards

The Academy Awards featured as part of the 2017 Annual Conference and this year we will do the same but under the new name 'Academy Awards'. The process has been reviewed and updated so it is clearer about how a winner is chosen. The awards will be presented to winners at the conference. This year’s Academy Awards will be data-driven only and highlight where standards are particularly high at subject level, and where students have made the most significant progress both in individual subjects and across each key stage. Awards will also be given where the most substantial improvements are in progress, in order to recognise both academies and individual subject areas that have really turned things around. There will be no need to apply for these as the recipients will be determined by OAT head office.
