Lee creates a strong sense of togetherness and unity in his classes. He always greets his students as they enter his technology teaching space, and his continuous positive affirmations are always well received.  His relationships in the classroom encourage outstanding behaviour and promote exceptional pupil wellbeing.   

Acutely aware of every student’s needs, he tracks how these change over time, enabling him to make adjustments and additions to his teaching and learning space.  His bespoke assessment system is always ‘live’ and visible to staff, students and parents.  

Lee’s influence goes well beyond the school walls. He plays an important role in his students’ character development and aspirations.  His STEM activities show his care for his students beyond their grades. His team launched a student-inspired disco ball 35,000 miles into the edge of space and successfully navigated its descent, and his students picked up three of the five awards on offer at the regional Young Engineer of the Year awards!
