Administrative/Biographical history:

A charitable Trust, the Schools Curriculum Award was established in 1982 by the Society of Education Officers and the editorial advisory panel of Education 'to celebrate curriculum design and teaching'. With an emphasis on the achievements of the individual school, it aims to put 'the school at the heart of the community' and 'to identify and celebrate schools which have established a broad and balanced curriculum enriched from the local community and environment'. It is open to all schools in the United Kingdom, those put forward being visited by voluntary assessors, and has held five rounds to date. Works of art were commissioned by the Trustees from which successful schools could make their choice of award. It also administers the Jerwood Award for individuals or institutions who had made a significant contribution to the theory and practice of education.

Records of the the first four rounds of the Schools Curriculum Award, 1982-1992, including papers of Professor John Race Godfrey Tomlinson, founder and Chairman of the Trustees; submissions from schools; assessors' reports; administrative papers; examples of the works of art awarded to successful schools.
