Fulham Cross Girls' School is one of 68 Silver Award Winners shortlisted for UK’s “Oscars for Teachers”
History teacher, Ms Brown, has won the Silver Teaching Award in the category New Teacher of the Year.
On winning the award, Ms Brown said: ‘So thrilled to receive this award and I am incredibly thankful to everyone at Fulham Cross Girls School for being so supportive and encouraging throughout my NQT year.
“Fulham Cross creates such a warm and positive atmosphere which helps both staff and students to flourish and I feel so very lucky to have started my teaching career in such a special place. I have been so inspired by other members of staff who are always working to provide our students with the very best and I am thankful to our students who make every day feel unique and rewarding! Thank you very much!”
Selected from thousands of nominations, Ms Brown is one of just 68 Silver Award winners across the country who will be celebrated today, on ‘Thank A Teacher Day’, as the Pearson National Teaching Awards marks its 21st year of celebrating excellence in education. Ms Hosp, our Head of Humanities, is also one of those Silver Award winners!
Ms Brown will be presented with a prestigious Pearson Silver Teaching Award trophy at the school to celebrate her outstanding achievement, as will her fellow Silver Award winners across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
The Pearson National Teaching Awards is an annual celebration of exceptional teachers, founded in 1998 by Lord Puttnam to recognise the life-changing impact an inspirational teacher can have on the lives of the young people they teach – many of whom go on to train as teachers themselves thanks to the significant impact their teachers have had on them.
Ms Brown has also been shortlisted to win one of just 13 Gold Awards at the UK’s “Oscars for Teachers”. She will join fellow Silver Award winners, along with three Scottish Education Award winners and three winners of the Professional Teaching Awards Cymru, at the 21st UK ceremony of the Pearson Teaching Awards. It is a glittering event held at the Roundhouse on 20 October. It is broadcast on BBC2 the following week, on 27 October, as “Britain’s Classroom Heroes” as a showcase of excellence in education.
Previous award presenters include former Prime Ministers David Cameron and Tony Blair, acting legends Jenny Agutter, Alison Steadman and Sheila Hancock, as well as sports and TV personalities including Shirley Ballas, Helen Glover, Brendan Cole and Nadiya Hussain.
