Essex Teaching Awards 2022

Essex's outstanding educators have been celebrated at the ninth annual Essex Teaching Awards.

The awards were presented on Wednesday (15 June) and provided a wonderful opportunity to celebrate staff working in primary, secondary, special and early years settings across Essex.

Speakers at the event included inspirational students, Max Williams from Mayflower High School in Billericay and Kim Woodward from Hylands School in Chelmsford.

Entertainment included performances from the Essex Dance Theatre and the Essex Youth Jazz Quintet.

Cllr Tony Ball, Essex County Council Cabinet Member for Education Excellence, Lifelong Learning and Employability, said: “I’m sure we can all remember a teacher, member of school staff, or an early year’s staff member who made a difference to our lives in some way.

“The Essex Teaching Awards give us the opportunity to highlight and celebrate the positive impact these individuals have on the lives of children and young people across Essex.

“I would like to congratulate everyone that won an award, was highly commended or nominated this year.”

Winners and two highly commended recipients were announced in categories such as New Teacher of the Year, Headteacher of the Year in a Secondary School and Team of the Year.

A number of Lifetime Achievement Awards were also given out.
