The search is on to find the most amazing people working in Hackney’s schools.

Hackney Council’s awards scheme will see stars who serve in all sorts of capacities receiving awards at Hackney Town Hall.

The categories are “teacher of the year”, “Hackney schools star” (for non-teaching members of staff) and “lifetime achievement award”.

Deputy mayor Cllr Anntoinette Bramble said: “Please take the time to nominate your unsung heroes who tirelessly work to achieve great results or deliver special care to you or your children.

“We provide some of the best schools in the country and teachers, therapists, admin staff, cooks and cleaners, to name but a few, have made this happen. They really deserve to be thanked.”
