Have your say

The popular LEP Education Awards are up and running.

Being named Secondary School of the Year last year was the icing on the cake for Penwortham Priory Academy.

The Crow Hills Road School scooped the accolade at a glittering ceremony after a hectic few months which had seen pupil Jamie Edwards become the world’s youngest fusioneer, as well as the finishing touches put to new buildings.

The school had also enjoyed a host of other successes in local and national events, working with the community and local primary schools.

The University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) is sponsoring the Secondary School of the Year award again. UCLan is committed to supporting students moving on from school to further and higher education and continually works with secondary schools locally and regionally with projects like the Junior university programme.

This award recognise a school’s positive contribution to the community, raising pupil achievement or collaborative work with other schools to raise standards and inspire learning.

There are 13 award categories, each with its own criteria for nomination, which you can see on

We are inviting Post readers to be actively involved and support these awards by nominating worthy candidates.
