Having achieved Gold IIP Accreditation in 2013, last Wednesday was a momentous occasion for Kilgarth when we were nominated for our first international award at the Investors in People Awards ceremony at the Tower of London. We were also one of only 4 schools shortlisted amongst big businesses from around the world!
Mr Baker (Headteacher), Ms Watkiss (Vice-chair of Governors) and Mrs Fowler (Senior Leadership Team member) were invited to represent Kilgarth and are pictured below (appropriately dressed for the occasion!) in the grounds of the Tower.

“75 countries were represented at the IIP Awards so it was a real privilege to be here with Kilgarth School. We didn’t win but to be shortlisted was an amazing achievement considering the challenges we face.” Mr Baker
“Formed in 1991, Investors in People was established by the UK Government to help organisations get the best from their people. Two decades later, our Standards are at the cutting edge of people management excellence, and our accreditation is proudly held by over 15,000 organisations across 75 countries .” Paul McEvoy, Head of Investors in People
