A teacher has been honoured for her contribution to a Swaffham secondary school during an awards event in Westminster.

Charlotte Cowles, head of media studies at the Nicholas Hamond Academy, was one of more than 20 teachers recognised in the event hosted by the school’s sponsors, the Academy Transformation Trust (ATT).

The award, which recognised work during the past year, was held at the House of Commons.

Principal Cheryl Hill said: “Since joining the academy in 2013, Charlotte has regularly proved herself to be a hugely valuable asset.

“She calls upon her broad and eclectic knowledge of different media to inspire her students and bring her lessons to life.

“Charlotte is an adaptable leader and frequently joins the leadership team for additional duties, assuming responsibility for virtually anything that needs to be championed.

“We are proud to be recognising Charlotte’s contribution to the Nicholas Hamond Academy.”

ATT chief executive Joyce Hodgetts said: “We are committed to recognising success and have over many years created opportunities to enable teachers, staff and pupils to be honoured for their achievements.”
