kmtoty2The School of Biosciences, a sponsor of the KM teacher of the year event for 2015, is delighted to announce the overall winner of the Biosciences category was won by a Biosciences graduate, Richard Fulford, now a science teacher at Invicta Grammar School, Maidstone.

Richard will be planning a return visit to the School of Biosciences where he studied until graduating in 2006, along with a small group of students for a ‘hands on’ practical experience in the teaching labs at the school.

Fifty six finalists attended a glittering awards dinner on 19 May 2015 at historic Leeds Castle. Historian David Starkey, as guest of honour, was on hand to present the prizes. It was a reunion for Dr Peter Klappa who represented the School at the event, Peter had previously taught Richard during his studies at Kent!

The awards were organised by the KM Charity Team in partnership with the KM Group and members of the public. Pupils and colleagues were invited to nominate the best teachers in Kent and Medway.
