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.
