    Duke of Kent School

    Wins the 2018

    ISA Award for Excellence in the Performing Arts

    The ISA Annual Awards, a national competition for Members, concluded with a glittering gala dinner on the 8th November where the winners were announced at the highly anticipated Awards Ceremony that welcomed around 200 guests. The evening was hosted by Danny Crates, a Paralympic gold medalist. 

    Mr Nick Rye, Head of Performing Arts, and Mrs Samantha Honey, Teacher of Drama were there to represent Duke of Kent School at this prestigious event.  They were very proud, and absolutely thrilled, when Duke of Kent School were announced as the winners of the Award for Excellence in the Performing Arts.

    Entries to the Awards opened in March 2018, and members were invited to celebrate their achievements in a range of categories – from Innovation in STEM, to Excellence in the Arts, to Outstanding Engagement with Parents. ISA received over 150 entries this year, all at such high quality, and it was certainly a difficult decision for our judges to make! Judging took place in the Summer, and 42 finalists were announced in the Autumn Term.

    ISA website quotes 'We would like to thank everybody who entered the Awards this year – our judges thoroughly enjoy reading about the extraordinary work that ISA members do, in various areas of provision. Congratulations to all those who were shortlisted, and especially to our 14 winners – a wonderful achievement for all those involved.'
