Pearson National Teaching Awards

Celebrating transformational teaching

Sara Sinaguglia

St Edwards RC/ C of E School

The Award for Teacher of the Year in a Secondary School

Poole, Dorset

Sara’s passion for teaching has transformed learning at St Edward’s in Dorset since she undertook part of her teacher training there and went on to start her career there in 2015. She ignites a love for History and Politics among the students and is well known for inspiring the other teachers as well as the young people she teaches. Whether coaching students to national debating finals or arranging a 1-1 for them with the Speaker of the House of Commons, she brings the subject alive – making it directly relevant to the lives and aspirations of those that she teaches.

Sara draws upon a formidable backdrop of achievements in her role as educator, including being a finalist in the National “Women in Rural Enterprise Awards”, and being a member of the gold medal English Commonwealth Fencing Team in Canada.
