Mr Thomson, Head of Science - Finalist in the National Teaching Awards

Mr Thomson from Rickmansworth School in Hertfordshire has been selected as a finalist for the prestigious Pearson Teaching Awards.

Finalists were selected from thousands of nominations from across the UK and Mr Thomson joins a list of 67 exceptional teachers who are the Teaching Awards “stars” of the education profession for 2015.

Finalists will find out if they have received a Pearson Teaching Awards on Thank a Teacher Day, 12 June 2015.  Winners will then be invited to the UK final to be held at the Royal Opera House, in October 2015 which is filmed and broadcast by the BBC.

I would like to congratulate Mr Thomson on behalf of the students, staff and Governors of Rickmansworth.  He leads an extremely successful Science department, inspires the young people and contributes to so many activities – such as Duke of Edinburgh Awards and the Outlook Expeditions.  Well done!

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all those students who nominated staff through the Pearson Teaching Award Scheme.  In total we had over 10 staff names by students.

Mr K Douglas, Headteacher
