Tes editor Ann Mroz said: “It is always a highlight of the education calendar to see the best ideas and people lauded at the Tes Schools Awards. But this year, it felt more important than ever to run an event that showcased and celebrated the hard work that teachers and school staff do for children and their local community every single day. This has been one of the most difficult years in education, but – as ever – teachers continue to rise to the challenge.

You completed your PGCE at Homerton in 2002. What has your career trajectory been since then?

I initially did middle school training, specialising in Maths. I had previously done a psychology degree and had run activity groups for children with learning difficulties for years. I could not imagine not working with children in some capacity, and when I started teaching in primary schools, I fell in love with how creative you were able to be.

Hoe Valley School in Woking was delighted to open its doors this morning to provide its founding cohort of students with their GCSE results. Many Woking residents will remember the build up to the School opening as news of the new Free School spread. This has been a year like no other, but especially for Hoe Valley School seeing its first students through to their GCSEs. Following the nationwide lockdown, it was wonderful to be able to share their results with them in person, socially distanced of course!

“I feel alright.” said Rupert Dale.

“I was nervous but now I’m really happy.” added Katie Evans.
