Lord Glenamara Memorial Prize awards

How to nominate outstanding pupils, teachers and inspiring educational professionals for the Lord Glenamara Memorial Prize awards.

We invite schools, sixth-form colleges, further education providers and business representatives to nominate pupils, teachers, career leaders and other inspiring professionals for recognition.

These prizes recognise North East pupils achieving academic and vocational excellence as well as dedicating themselves to the service of others in their school and the wider community. They also recognise the most inspiring teachers and other professionals who are helping to ensure that young people in the North East achieve their potential.

How to nominate

Nominations can be made by completing the nomination form. The closing date for entries is Monday 11 November.

Pupil prizes

Headteachers and principals can nominate any year 11, 12 and 13 pupils who have shown:

  • outstanding academic or technical performance – including record of grades achieved or predicted grades
  • civic contribution – particularly volunteering personal time and resource, for example by mentoring younger pupils, helping with extracurricular events or working with a youth group or a charity outside of school hours
  • interest in government, education, history or public service

Prizes for professionals

This year we are also inviting nominations for inspiring education professionals working in state schools, sixth-form colleges or further education providers in the North East. We encourage nominations from the following stakeholders:

  • headteachers and principals
  • teachers
  • governors and trustees
  • academy trust CEOs
  • directors of children’s services (local authorities)
  • diocese
  • local enterprise partnerships

Winners of the 2019 to 2020 prizes will be invited to a prize-giving event next year hosted by Durham University. More details will be made available once winners have been selected.
