Head of Music wins Sussex Teacher of the Year!

The whole academy is so proud of our amazing and inspirational Head of Music, Ms Laura Fauvel, who has won Sussex Secondary School Teacher of the Year at the Sussex Teacher Awards held at the Mercure Hotel in Brighton this week.

She works incredibly hard not only in the academy but outside it too; giving younger students the opportunity to be part of Junior Band every Saturday morning free of charge; she runs choirs, ukulele orchestra; steel band and is always striving for more and thinking of new creative ways to engage young people with music.

Academy Principle Kieran Scanlon said: "We are so lucky to have Laura, whose passion for the subject is contagious. We are delighted that her incredible hard work, creativity and committment to music education has been recognised with this award. We always knew she was fantastic but now everyone outside of our school community does too!"
