YATE teacher Steve Clayson is celebrating after being presented with an award given to recognise excellence in eduction.
Mr Clayson, who works at St Mary Redcliffe and Temple School in Bristol, received a silver award in the annual scheme that honours outstanding teachers and teaching.
The Pearson Teaching  Awards were established in 1999 by Lord Puttnam, the Oscar-winning film producer and educator, with an event held each autumn to put the spotlight on all the silver winners and reveal ten of them as winners of the top gold award.
This year the event was hosted by comedian and actor Hugh Dennis at the Guildhall in London.
In the nomination to the judging panel, one of Mr Clayson’s students said the assistant head was the best teacher he had ever had in 13 years of schooling - someone who loved to see people learn and grow.
The student said: “You have been a great influence on the school and a huge influence on me as I have grown up.”
