Shared Education awarded Her Majesty the Queen’s Award

The work of the Centre for Shared Education, hosted in the School of Social Sciences, Education and Social Work (SSESW), has been recognised by a Queen’s Anniversary Prize, part of the national honours system marking outstanding achievement by United Kingdom universities.

Beginning as a pilot programme with just 12 schools in 2007, Shared Education has grown in over a decade to more than 700 schools and over 60,000 pupils now involved in regular, shared classes with Schools from different denominations.
