The idea is simple. School-children are encouraged to thank a special teacher via an online scheme, and from among those thanked, the judges seek potential winners. But no teacher can win without a vote of confidence from their most important judges: the pupils.

The jazzy ceremony, hosted by Clare Balding at the Victoria Palace Theatre in London, will celebrate teachers, teaching assistants, heads and teams who have affected the lives of their young charges. Jake Humphrey is among the celebrities handing out the gongs, with actress Anna Friel presenting the lifetime achievement award.


Clare Balding joins Anna Friel, Jake Humphrey, Michael Morpurgo, Zoe Ball and Katherine Grainger for the prestigious ceremony from the Victoria Palace Theatre, London. The star-studded event celebrates education's finest from all over the UK.
