CCGS Teacher Wins Inspirational Teachers Award

18th May 2017

Since 2010, the Undergraduate Admissions and Outreach office at 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 2017 ten teachers were honoured with an award. All had been nominated by students currently in their first year at Oxford. Former pupil, Jamie Fowler, nominated Ms. Nicholas after he fell in love with Biology. When nominating her for the award he stated “Biology lessons with Ms. Nicholas were something I looked forward to, something I knew would be entertaining as well as intellectually engaging. I’m extremely grateful I had the opportunity to be taught by her. It took a lot of hard work to get into Oxford, but I can graciously admit that I couldn’t have done it without her.” Jamie went on to achieve an A* grade in A-Level Biology and is now studying Biomedical Sciences at New College.

Both Jamie and Ms. Nicholas had the chance to meet up again on Friday 19th May to attend an awards ceremony at the University of Oxford.
