Some of the winners at Sussex Teacher of the Year Awards celebrate

Show your support for a school star

The Sussex Teacher of the Year Awards were started to mark the vital contribution that teaching staff make to our community. The awards recognise the expertise and dedication that is the hallmark of an outstanding teacher.

Nominations open each January. Award categories include primary, secondary, newly qualified teacher, non teaching member of staff including midday supervisors and caretakers and a volunteer award, which includes members of the PTA and governors.

Winners of the event, which is staged by the charity Inspire Schools, will be announced at a ceremony in June at Jury’s Inn, Brighton.  Streetspace will play a leading role in the event with Simon Dolby from the company joining the judging panel.

Event timetable:

  • 2 January – noon on 1 March: open for nominations
  • April: Judging panel meets
  • June: Awards celebration for 50 top school staff in Sussex.
