CNS teacher wins Most Inspirational Teacher Award

CNS Assistant Headteacher and Director of Achievement Kate Nichols, has been awarded Most Inspirational Teacher Award at the recent Shine School Media Awards ceremony held in Stationers’ Hall in the City of London.  The student nominated award recognises one key teacher who has had a huge impact on their student’s work.

The Shine School Media Awards is a national competition which rewards schools that produce an outstanding newspaper, magazine, podcast or website.  The aim of Shine is to encourage an interest in print and digital publishing and to raise awareness of the skills and knowledge required by the media and graphics industry.

Ms Nichols won the award for going above and beyond to help her students with their publication, the CNS Science Magazine.  Such a publication is not necessarily expected of a Science Teacher but Ms Nichols is dedicated and determined to help them pursue their interests in science journalism.

Ms Nichols said “I am very touched and grateful to Maud, Bartek, Mina and Hannah for their nomination for most inspiring teacher at this year's School's Media Shine Awards.  I was surprised and very excited to have won at the ceremony which took place at Stationer's Hall in London.

“Their CNS Science Magazine was also shortlisted for 4 other awards and we certainly hope to win in some other categories with their next "Technology and Engineering" edition which is due out in the Autumn term”.

Jo Philpott, Headteacher at CNS said  “This is a wonderful achievement for Ms Nichols and CNS, who always goes above and beyond in supporting her students. Ms Nichols was nominated by the students who wanted her enthusiasm and support to be rewarded. Congratulations!”
