Congratulations, RBAir!

Red Balloon of the Air is a finalist for the “ISA SEND School of the Year Award” in the ISA Awards 2023.

Each year the Independent School Association (ISA) holds the ISA Awards to recognise independent schools making achievements across a number of different categories across the UK. They offer an excellent opportunity to demonstrate a school’s high-quality provision and to celebrate the success with staff and fellow ISA Members.

We’re absolutely delighted to announce that this year Red Balloon of the Air is a finalist in the “ISA SEND School of the Year” category. Red Balloon always takes our students’ needs and abilities into account through every step of their journey with us, and we work hard to ensure that each student is given the individual support they need to accomplish their unique goals. It’s a testament to our staff that we are finalists and in the top three schools for this award.

RBAir Headteacher, Michelle Williams, has shared her excitement about this wonderful news,

I am incredibly proud of all RBAir staff for their hard work. The skill and dedication of RBAir colleagues gives our learners the support they need to improve their personal wellbeing, boost social confidence, and reach academic goals. We are all passionate about supporting our students to succeed and it’s wonderful to receive this recognition.

We are also pleased to say that RBAir is also Highly Commended in the ISA Awards “Innovation in Independent Education” category. You can find out more here.
