After the first North Yorkshire Secondary School Teaching Awards was held back in June of this year, we have received great feedback surrounding the event from both the winners and others that attended. Everyone seemed to thoroughly enjoy the evening and it was great to witness first-hand the incredible impact teaching staff in North Yorkshire have.
Now five months have passed since the Teaching Awards, we have had the chance to catch up with schools involved to hear their feedback on the winners and the evening itself. The Headteacher of Wharfedale School had some great comments on the event:
"The North Yorkshire Teaching Awards Ceremony was a wonderful evening and it was fantastic to hear of the tremendous achievements in schools throughout the county. It was humbling to hear of the dedication of both teaching and support staff in their various roles. We were delighted that the Maths Department of Upper Wharfedale School were awarded the 'Outstanding Teaching Team of the Year' which is testimony to years of hard work and commitment to achieving the best possible outcomes for our students."
These comments provide a great summary of the impact of the Teaching Awards and the sense of pride that both the winners and their schools felt upon receiving an accreditation. We were thoroughly impressed by the quality of the teaching staff working within our county and hope that these individuals continue to shape the lives of young people through their unique approaches to education.
We now look forward to next year’s awards and cannot wait to meet the next generation of exceptional teaching staff!
