We are so proud to announce that Miss Pippa Wadey has won a Silver Award and is one of the UK finalists of The Pearson National Teaching Awards, nominated in the Teacher of the Year in a Secondary School category.

Miss Wadey, Director of Learning, Research and Outreach and Teacher of Religious Studies is a Silver Award Winner and as such will go on to the UK final in October at an event which will be televised by the BBC. This event is the UK’s “Oscars for Teachers”, and it is there that the winners of 13 Gold Awards will be announced.

The Pearson National Teaching Awards recognise inspirational teaching and the amazing contributions that teaching staff across the country make to the lives of the young people that they teach.

This year we are also proud to have three teachers who have been awarded with Certificates of Excellence, in the following categories:

Outstanding New Teacher of the Year – Miss Hannah Lovell (Biology Teacher)

Excellence in Special Needs Teaching – Ms Justyna Sokolowska (Head of Learning Enrichment)

Teacher of the Year in a Primary School – Mrs Ena Burgess (Junior School Director of Music).

The Teaching Awards were set up by Lord David Puttnam in 1998 to celebrate and recognise excellence in education.

Putney’s awards were presented by the Mayor of Wandsworth, Councillor Jane Cooper and James Healey of Pearson, on “Thank a Teacher Day” at the Senior School Sports Day at Wimbledon Park Athletics Track.

Many congratulations Miss Wadey and indeed to all of the fantastic teachers at Putney High School.
