Rory Bremner hosted the event and Mrs Gore had a fantastic time. TES had this to say about the awards, "Not even a royal wedding is as good at lifting the gloom as hearing about the inspirational work going on in our schools. While the economic downturn is squeezing budgets everywhere and more cuts are on the way - schools across the UK are still managing to push the boundaries. Now in their third year, the TES Schools Awards or Tessas aim to celebrate this work. This year’s awards attracted a record number of entries, extolling the achievements of teachers, school leaders, support staff and pupils alike. If there is one principle underlying the awards it is that success is a team effort. It is rarely the product of one person acting alone."News team Mrs A. Gore, Hannah Tear, Jamie Russell, Katy Watkinson, Taylor McKenzie, Megan Powderly & Finn Cromack
