Oliver McIntyre
  • The Award for Outstanding New Teacher of the Year
  • Hillcrest Shifnal School
  • Shifnal, Shropshire

Oliver McIntyre has overcome his own challenges at school to qualify as a teacher, and he has chosen to work with some of the more challenging pupils to help them transition to life at secondary school.

Teaching Geography and History under a combined Humanities subject means he keeps life varied for his students as they tackle tough topics and fierce debates. He has made a tremendous impact in his first year of teaching and has a bright future ahead of him.
