Inspirational Teachers Award

Ms C Swayne, MFL Teacher has been nominated for a University of Oxford Inspirational Teachers Award by a former student.

Congratulations to Ms Swayne!

Since 2010, the University of Oxford has run a scheme to recognise inspirational teachers from UK schools and colleges.

This award scheme recognises the crucial role teachers play in encouraging talented students in their schools or colleges. Each year, current first-year Oxford undergraduates from UK state schools or colleges with a limited history of sending students to Oxford are asked if they would like to nominate an inspirational teacher. 

The Inspirational Teachers Awards are a way of recognising the importance of school or college teachers in encouraging bright students to realise their potential and make a successful application to Oxford.

In 2018 ten teachers were honoured with an award. All were nominated by students currently in their first year at Oxford and attended an awards ceremony held at the University of Oxford in May.
