Best Secondary School teacher in Medway

Best Secondary School teacher in Medway

RGS PE teacher Hanna Miller has been named the Best Secondary School teacher in Medway at the annual Kent Teacher of the Year Awards. Hanna, who juggles teaching with her other responsibilities as Assistant Head of Thinking, Teaching and Learning across the Thinking Schools Academy Trust, has been a highly valued member of the teaching staff at RGS for seven years, and we are delighted to see her receive public recognition for her efforts.

Hanna was praised at the ceremony for her phenomenal support of the students in her care, which have led to truly outstanding outcomes; 100% of GCSE PE students last year achieved a grade 7 or better, with a staggering 30% of these at a grade 9 – a grade which only 4% of students achieve nationally. Her use of teaching methods based in cognitive science, that ensure her students make excellent progress, was praised by awards host Simon Dolby, CEO of the KM Charity Team.

“Hanna is an outstanding member of staff who always gives that little bit extra to all of her students.  Her knowledge of cognitive science and the PE curriculum is unparalleled and we feel very lucky that she is a teacher at RGS and is able to support and challenge our students in such a successful way”

Hanna was selected by a panel of expert judges from hundreds of nominations received from students, parents and colleagues for this year’s awards, hosted by the KM Media Group and attended by a shortlist of finalists at the International Hotel in Ashford. Now in their 19th year, the awards celebrate the way in which teachers are changing the lives of students across Kent, Medway and Bexley. The aim is to spread best practice to all schools in the region.
