Bett Awards 2021 – International Finalists
The RGS Worcester Schools are delighted to be selected as Finalists for a highly coveted international award in recognition of the online learning it provided for pupils throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.
The RGS Family of Schools join Eton College as one of only eight academic institutions from across the world to be shortlisted for ‘The Covid-19 Response Champions Awards – Schools & Colleges (UK & International)’ awarded by BETT. The global BETT shows are the biggest events of their kind in the world, and the BETT Awards are a hallmark of quality and high levels of achievement within Educational Technology. This Award is a tribute to the companies and schools who have responded to the Covid-19 outbreak in a way that has positively impacted the education, health and wellbeing of students.
To be selected as a global finalist is a fantastic accomplishment, and is recognition of the incredible efforts by all involved across the four RGS Schools in delivering the very best continuity of education for pupils. Mr Pitt comments “We are very pleased that all the hard work of our staff and the commitment of our pupils and parents has been recognised in this way. We were able to switch straight to a full remote learning programme when it was needed during this pandemic and have since realised that we are at the cutting-edge of what is available nationally and even internationally.”
Winners of the Covid-19 Response Champions BETT Awards will be announced later in January, but regardless of the outcome, we are pleased to have been recognised for the continuity of education we have been able to provide for pupils and support to RGS parents at this challenging time for everyone.
