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 represented Putney at the UK final on 20 October 2019 – an event televised by the BBC. Known as the UK’s “Oscars for Teachers” the award ceremony was broadcast on BBC2 on Saturday 26 October.

 

“I feel incredibly honoured to even have been put forward for the award. Thank you to Suzie Longstaff for providing me with opportunities that drive and motivate me to be a better teacher every day.  I feel so lucky to work at such an incredible school and receiving silver isn’t just for me, but for the amazing teaching that happens every day across Putney as a whole. My love for my job comes from the amazing girls that I teach – they make me laugh every day, give me energy, never fail to surprise me and always go above and beyond in whatever I ask of them. It is because of them that I can call my job, the best in the world”. Miss Wadey.

 

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.
