Date published: 02 July 2021

Oldham Hulme Grammar School has been shortlisted in the 'Outstanding Response to Covid-19' category at the Independent School Parent magazine's Independent Schools of the Year 2021 awards.

An Independent School Parent magazine spokesperson said: "The entry response has again been overwhelming this year, and we are thrilled that a record a number of schools from across the country have entered nominations into the 24 awards categories.

"The aim of the awards has always been to highlight the excellence of the student experience in independent schools.

"On the evidence of the submissions, the independent school sector in Britain is demonstrating resilience and agility, while continuing to deliver a first-class educational experience to its pupils despite having to live with ever-changing levels of restrictions.

"It has been wonderful to learn about transformative and innovative projects and programmes that are underway from Aberdeen to Truro, and we have so enjoyed reading the schools' stories."
