South Lee headmistress, Ruth O'Sullivan said: "We are thrilled to have made it to the finals of the TES Independent School of the Year awards, as it is a huge accolade and demonstrates just how brilliantly the South Lee community has risen to the challenges of the last twelve months.

"We worked very hard at getting our remote learning up and running very quickly. The children had live lessons with their teachers for 5 hours a day. We also built in time with their tutors every day, so they could talk to their friends and their teachers about any worries they had.
