The Independent School AwardsTM recognise excellence in the strategic and financial management of independent schools in the UK. The awards presentation is held in November each year. We launched the Awards in reaction to the lack of recognition of the achievements of independent schools. The sector is the envy of the world yet is little recognised at home; the Awards are changing this. Here's a link to a brief video about the ISAs 2013 event.
