Middleton school shortlisted in Educate Awards for dedication to STEM subjects

Date published: 22 November 2020

Cardinal Langley RC High School has been named in the Educate Awards 2020 shortlist.

The awards, in partnership with Copyrite Systems and Ricoh, is now in its ninth year and is the largest education awards in the North West.

The Middleton high school has been shortlisted for the Outstanding Commitment to STEM Award, sponsored by All About STEM.

At last year’s glittering ceremony, Cardinal Langley took home the STEM Project of the Year Award - before it was renamed to Outstanding Commitment to STEM Award - after impressing the judges with its dedication to STEM (science, technology, engineering, and maths) subjects.

Having won a number of national STEM competitions, the school is now integrating more theory and practical work into maths, science and English lessons so new Year 7 students get exposure to STEM early on in their school life.

Since launching in Liverpool in 2012, the awards has grown rapidly, recognising schools and colleges right across the Liverpool City Region, Cheshire, Lancashire, and Greater Manchester.

From inspiring teachers, dedicated support staff to innovative projects across the curriculum, the awards recognise the work of schools and colleges which are delivering outstanding education and helping students achieve their full potential, even during these unprecedented times.

Due to the current pandemic, the ceremony has been postponed this year, but despite the difficult times, a record amount of schools and colleges from around the region entered one or more of the 21 categories.

Kim O’Brien, founder of the Educate Awards, said: “A huge well done to Cardinal Langley RC High School for being shortlisted in the Educate Awards 2020!

“It has been a really tough year for everyone and so we felt it was more important than ever to shine a spotlight on the heroes of the education sector and all the hard work that goes on in schools and colleges around the North West.

“The calibre of entries we received were incredibly strong - our judges will really have their work cut out when deciding on the winners.”
