A group of teachers who passed a rigorous training and research programme nine months ahead of schedule have been hailed as “trailblazers”.

The eight, from schools in Haverhill, Newmarket and Great Cornard have become the first to go through the Lead Practitioners scheme, set up by Samuel Ward Academy Trust’s Research School with the SSAT, the Schools, Students and Teachers Network.

The group will now work with other teachers – from both within and outside of the Trust – to ensure students are getting the most from their education.

Chris Dale, director of the Research School, said : “They are real trailblazers and I would like to congratulate them all.”

The eight teachers who achieved the accreditation were Rachel Brown (English teacher – Samuel Ward Academy); Louise Cassels (Science – Castle Manor Academy); Kerrie Cavilla (Geography – Samuel Ward Academy); Rachel Clarke (Maths – Samuel Ward Academy); Sarah Cooper (Maths – Thomas Gainsborough School); Melanie Davies (English – Newmarket Academy); Rosie Furey (English – Thomas Gainsborough School); Lucy Nichol (Art – Thomas Gainsborough School).

They all received Lead Practitioner Accreditation from SSAT in the programme’s autumn 2017 accreditation gateway.
