Nominate your Teacher of the Year now!

Do you know a teacher or teaching assistant who really goes the extra mile?

The Bury Free Press 2024 Top of the Class awards will place the focus firmly on those classroom heroes who deserve a real pat on the back. Is your son's teacher helping him through a difficult time with maths and English? Or has your daughter's teaching assistant been supportive at a particularly difficult time? We all know teachers and TAs who have been a rock for our children, and this is the chance to say well done.

We need you to tell us who should lift our Teacher of the Year award and our Teaching Assistant of the Year award. Each award will take in nominations from primary and secondary schools. The schools must fall within the circulation area of the Bury Free Press*.

Closing date for receipt of your nominations is March 25 - after this date, a shortlist will be created for the two categories based on the highest number of nominations we receive.

Winners announced in the Bury Free Press and online on Friday, April 19.
