A SIXTH form teacher is one of ten in the UK to receive the University of Oxford’s Inspirational Teacher Award 2018.

Kim Lambert, who is also deputy faculty manager at Prior Pursglove College in Guisborough, was nominated by former student Beth Carter, 19, from Middlesbrough, who is now studying experimental psychology at New College, Oxford.

Beth said: “Kim’s love of education and passion for psychology specifically is felt by everyone that she teaches and even those that she doesn’t.”

Ms Lambert said: “It is such an honour to have been given this award both on a professional and personal level.”
