Harlow Education Awards

The Harlow Education Awards celebrate young people who have made significant progress in their education and who have made a real contribution to their schools and the community - often overcoming significant challenges to do so. Since 2023, the awards also recognise the role of support staff and teachers.

The last awards were held in January 2024 at the Civic Centre.

Each young person was given a framed certificate and gift vouchers to mark their achievement.
