North Yorkshire Teaching Awards 2018

North Yorkshire Teaching Awards 2018 – a great success!

This year’s North Yorkshire Teaching Awards took place last Thursday at The Pavilions, Harrogate and was an extremely enjoyable evening for all who attended. It was an opportunity to celebrate all of the work both teaching staff and non-teaching staff do within our North Yorkshire secondary schools.

The awards consisted of several different categories including Classroom Teacher of the Year in a Secondary School, Outstanding Team Leader of the Year and Teaching Assistant of the Year. The range of categories meant that we were able to hear some fantastic stories about the different nominees and their contributions to their school. Thank you to all those who attended and supported the evening, and congratulations to our winners and all nominees!

North Yorkshire Teaching Awards- A Huge Success!


The first ever North Yorkshire Secondary School Teaching Awards were held on Thursday 29th June at the beautiful Rudding Park in Harrogate.

The event was a huge success. Teachers joined us in abundance to enjoy the drinks reception and subsequent award ceremony.

 The Awards were initially established by the NY Secondary Improvement Board to recognise and celebrate outstanding and inspirational teaching practice made by teachers in North Yorkshire. They provided NY Schools with an opportunity to showcase their teachers and give them the appreciation and recognition they deserve.

Amongst those who attended were Pete Dwyer, NYCC’s Director for Children and Young People’s Service, Paul Brennan, Assistant Director Education and Skills, members of the Secondary Improvement Board and our special guest, Danielle Brown.

Danielle, aged just 29, is a competitive archer who has represented team GB in the Paralympic games. Danielle achieved a Gold medal at the Paralympic games in Beijing 2008 and won her successive gold medal during London 2012.

Danielle thoroughly enjoyed attending the awards and was immensely inspired by the hard work and dedication of our teachers and support staff.

Overall, a fantastic evening full of recognition and praise for the outstanding teachers of North Yorkshire.


More teachers are joining than leaving the profession, but will it be enough to meet demand?

The number of teachers has continued to grow this year and has done at a steady rate since 2010.

But is it growing fast enough?


As pupil numbers are expected to rise, demand for teachers is likely to increase, particularly in secondary schools.
