Two schools in London have been shortlisted for the world’s best school prize, Avanti House secondary school and Kingsford community school, Newham could win a share of $50,000.

The schools have been nominated for supporting healthy lives, overcoming adversity, innovation, community collaboration and environmental action.

Kingsford school has been shortlisted for “overcoming adversity,” whilst Avanti has been shortlisted for supporting healthy lives, the Evening Standard reported.

A spokesman for the prize said, “Kingsford collaborates with various organisations to raise awareness about safety and provide students with opportunities through a comprehensive curriculum and engagement with external partners where social mobility and cultural and social capital are key features.

“This holistic approach fosters a safe, supportive learning environment, even in the face of community challenges.”

A spokesman for the awards said, “This holistic approach, rooted in the school’s ‘Avanti Way,’ fosters not only high academic standards but also promotes deep personal growth and communal responsibility among its 1,190 students.”

Vikas Pota, Founder of T4 Education and the World’s Best School Prizes, said, “Unless we solve the urgent challenges global education faces – from learning gaps exacerbated by Covid to chronic underfunding and the growing teacher wellbeing, recruitment and retention crisis – we will have failed the next generation.

“Trailblazing London schools like Kingsford Community School and Avanti House Secondary School, which have cultivated a strong culture and aren’t afraid to innovate, show the difference that can be made to so many lives.

“Schools everywhere can now learn from their solutions, and it’s time governments do so as well.”
