The best teachers, support staff and school volunteers have been honoured at the Kent Teacher of the Year Awards.
Fifty-one finalists from across the county gathered at an ceremony recognising the inspiration and dedication of those teaching our youngsters. Guest speaker, the Lord Lieutenant of Kent, Viscount De L’Isle MBE, said:
“We all know just how important a good education is, and it provides the firm foundation for Kent’s broad knowledge economy. The individuals and groups honoured here at the awards are an integral part of building upon this structure.”
Escape to the Country and Wanted Down Under presenter Nicki Chapman, who is from Kent, also gave praise after recording a special message for the finalists. The awards, held at Leeds Castle, were organised by the KM Charity Team in partnership with the KM Group.by
