Physics guru and Head of Science, Mr Stark, has been recognised and awarded as Teacher of the Year at the Worcestershire Education Awards 2022!
Each year, the Worcester News in partnership with the University of Worcester, runs the awards scheme to shine a light on those working in education who go the extra mile to educate, inspire and train students. There are various different categories that can be entered, and the organisers had received over 100 nominations in total.
Mr Stark was nominated by fellow NCW colleagues for Teacher of the Year for his innovative lessons and practical adaptations, inspirational school trips, his work with our NCW pets as well as encouraging students to develop a love for Science – like himself!
Mr Stark was up against many other Teachers across Worcestershire, and attended the virtual Awards Ceremony in February to hear the fantastic news that he had won!
Speaking of his victory, Mr Stark said: “I am very proud having received this award. It is also very nice to hear from former students and staff who have been congratulating me!”
Mr Stark truly loves Science, and finds Physics incredibly interesting – “particularly how we can explain how the Universe works with equations and simple-ish explanations.”
“My favourite practical is making models of DNA with sweets – the students really like that one too for some reason…!”
Well done Mr Stark – a very well deserved award and the staff and students here at NCW are very proud of you!
