  Coolest teachers revealed
Updated 29 October 2001, 13.44

This year's coolest teachers have been revealed.

Thousands of parents and pupils voted in the awards, sponsored by BT.

Among the winners were John King of Greswold Primary School, Solihull, West Midlands, who won Primary Teacher of the Year.

He's frequently seen breaking school rules by running down the corridor.

Busy day

That's because he's so popular that people are always after him!

As well as teaching, he also organises:

  • the school's cross country race
  • sporting events
  • kids' discos
  • family quizzes
  • weekly after-school fun run
  • school fairs
  • annual summer camp
  • annual pantomime

Interesting lessons

The top secondary school teacher was David Bennett, from Babington Community Technology College in Leicester.

He was praised for his ability to make pupils interested in lessons.

Each winner in 10 categories took prizes worth 25,000 back to their school - a grant of 15,000 and computer equipment worth 10,000.

Anyone wanting to nominate their teacher for next year's awards can do so by clicking on the link on the top right.
