The judges said: "All this year's entries were really strong, but for its values-led approach to the education of girls, focusing on resilience and permeating across all aspects of school life and relationships, this year's winner is Lady Eleanor Holles School."

“We are truly delighted to have this recognition.” said Head Mistress Heather Hanbury. "The Award recognises the hard work and commitment of all LEH staff, so congratulations are due to the entire School team. We won this against some very impressive competition, so it’s all the more pleasing.”

The other finalists were Benenden School, Downe House, Harrogate Ladies’ College and St Mary’s School, Cambridge. More than 700 schools took part in the nationwide contest and the winners were revealed at a virtual ceremony on Thursday 7 October.
