Angela Hilton
  • The Award for Teacher of the Year in a Primary School
  • Cleves Cross Nursery and Primary School Academy
  • Ferryhill, County Durham,

Angela is a one-of-a-kind teacher! She knows every child in school and personally invests time and effort to ensure children achieve the very best they can. Her classroom is a vibrant, happy place for children to enjoy and learn. Everyday is different; she constantly surprises her pupils – and colleagues – with innovative, engaging activities, making learning as enjoyable and memorable as possible.

Her strengths extend way beyond the requirements of the curriculum and ensure that our school’s motto of ‘together we can…’ is delivered in such a way that children are inspired and challenged to explore and investigate their world both in our community and the world beyond! 

Angela’s leadership work with our wider curriculum – International Schools, Rights Respecting, Sustainability, Fairtrade and Learning Outside the Classroom are all carried out with enthusiasm, passion and a real sense of purpose that we all just can’t fail to be inspired by.
