Our very own Dr Weeks has won the 2015 Secondary School Biology Teacher of the Year Award. The Society of Biology award recognises outstanding biology teaching inside and outside of the classroom.

On receiving his award Dr Weeks said: “I’m absolutely thrilled to have won this award. I believe that teaching Biology is all about getting students interested and excited in the subject. To win Biology Teacher of the Year is a wonderful endorsement of what I’m trying to achieve in the classroom.”

Dr Weeks will receive his award at a ceremony at The Royal Institution today.

Paul will receive £500 for himself and £500 of free Oxford University Press resources for Oxford High School. He will also receive prizes for his classroom from UK 3B Scientific Ltd and the National Science Learning Centre.
