The award ceremony took place on January 18 in the United Kingdom and was virtually followed by hundreds of people from the international school community. The 2022 International School Awards recognized 12 categories focusing on important values and areas of development within the international schools market. 261 applications from international schools in 48 countries were submitted for the International School Awards 2022.
