The School Biology Teacher of the Year Award is now open for nominations. If you know an amazing teacher of biology who deserves recognition then please nominate them.

The award is open to all teachers who are working with students aged 11-18 years old, teaching pre-university level biology programmes of study, and currently employed in a UK based school or college.

The winner will receive £500 for themselves and £500 of Oxford University Press resources for their school in addition to prizes from UK 3B Scientific Ltd and the National Science Learning Centre.

We are looking for teachers who display the following qualities:

  • Outstanding and inspirational teaching of biology
  • Inspiring pupils beyond the classroom by supporting high quality extra-curricular learning opportunities both in and outside of the classroom setting
  • Delivering inspirational INSET training for colleagues to share best practice in the teaching of biology and spreading their enthusiasm for the subject
  • Influencing the teaching and learning of biology beyond their own institution in other schools or educational settings

Last year's winner was Catherine Russell MSB from Altrincham Girls' Grammar School in Manchester. The judges were particularly impressed with Catherine's meticulously planned revision lessons where every student has a carefully considered role and misconceptions are skilfully corrected.

Nominations will close on Friday 12th December.

This award is supported by Oxford University Press in conjunction with UK 3B Scientific Ltd and the National Science Learning Centre.
