Awards, Accolades and Achievements
Crosfields is one of the leading independent schools in South East England, committed to providing an exceptional education for our students. We strive to offer the best possible experience for the Crosfields Community and we are delighted to have been recognised through various awards and nominations recently.
TES Teaching Assistant of the Year
Our wonderful Teaching Assistant, Sheila Mitchell, has been short-listed for Teaching Assistant of the Year in the TES School Awards. Mrs Mitchell is an outstanding Teaching Assistant, who consistently goes above and beyond what is expected of her to support the children emotionally and with their learning. We are thrilled that she has received this much-deserved recognition. The winners of the TES School Awards will be announced on 23 June, and we wish Mrs Mitchell the best of luck!
AMCIS (Admissions, Marketing and Communications in Independent Schools) IMPACT Awards
The AMCIS IMPACT Awards celebrate the work of admissions, marketing and communications teams by rewarding campaigns that have made a significant impact on schools and their communities.
We are delighted to announce that Crosfields won the ‘Small Budget’ category for our Golden Ticket campaign. As recent successful applicants will know, the Golden Ticket is part of our admissions process. When students successfully secure a place at the school, they receive a golden, Willy-Wonka-style ticket in the post. This was created to add a sense of magic to the admissions process and to make the child feel special. Included on the back of the ticket is a scannable QR code with more information for parents about what to expect in the coming months.
The AMCIS judges describe this as ‘‘an inspired campaign which delivered on its objective to influence families who were deciding on a school. The campaign celebrates the achievement of the child and added a sense of excitement to the process.”
The award represents a true team effort by our Marketing and Admissions team in bringing an idea to life.
Modeshift STARS is a national award scheme, established to celebrate schools that support sustainable forms of travel.
Crosfields is proud to announce that we have received their Bronze Award. This is given to schools that demonstrate a commitment to promoting sustainable transport by conducting an annual survey, identifying travel issues and solutions, and delivering a range of travel initiatives.
Crosfields introduced the Walk It Wednesday initiative in 2019, where we encourage our students to walk to school on a Wednesday for both the environment and their health. Our Bike Week scheme also promotes a more active, eco-friendly way of travelling to school. Both initiatives have led to our Bronze Award with Modeshift STARS, and we are looking forward to earning our Silver Award next.
