India Brown

Fulham Cross Girls' School and Language College

The Award for Outstanding New Teacher of the Year

Fulham, London

Since India started as a Newly Qualified Teacher a year ago she has had a profound impact on her students and the wider school.  She’s described as unswervingly positive and known for her creative teaching methods in bringing History to life.

Her historical drama club ‘Act the Facts’ has proved to be an enormous hit, as has her challenge club, which has seen students debating and visiting top universities in preparation for later life.

India is described by colleagues as ‘a dream to work with’, and is already contributing to the trainee teachers development programme.
