• The Award for Lifetime Achievement
  • Melling Primary School
  • Liverpool, Merseyside

Christine Miller retires at the end of this school year from her lifelong career in teaching and it is not an understatement to say that the world of education will be a lesser place without the inspirational magic sprinkled by her in every aspect of school life.

Mrs Miller is quite simply ‘Melling Primary’ personified – the school values, especially the motto ‘Be the best that you can be’ are reflected in all that she does. The influence she has had throughout her 12 years as Deputy Headteacher has been instrumental and transformational in the outstanding behaviour, respect and positive attitudes to learning that are noted by so many.

Christine Miller is an education power-house, for whom second-best is never good enough. As a teacher she is one in a million, as a person she is quite simply unique.
