Annecy Catholic Primary School Teachers win awards.

November 11, 2021

Annecy Catholic Primary School in Seaford is celebrating the news that staff have scooped two overall wins and a district win in this year’s Sussex Teacher of the Year Awards.

Headteacher Paul Gallagher and school secretary Chris Baillie have both won Sussex-wide awards, with Paul being named Overall Sussex Head Teacher of the Year and Chris taking the accolade of Overall Sussex Receptionist of the Year. Meanwhile, Reception class teacher Frankie Chappell has been named Primary School Teacher of the Year for Lewes District.

“As you can imagine we are absolutely delighted to have won these awards,” says Paul. “All I can say of my own win is that it is a privilege to lead such a wonderful school community. I have such a great team supporting me, including Chris, who has kept the school running smoothly for the past 16 years.”
“Frankie’s win is thoroughly deserved for all the work, dedication and enthusiasm he puts into making the transition from nursery to primary school a smooth and enjoyable experience for the children and their families.”

Annecy Catholic Primary School is part of the BOSCO Catholic Education Trust, a group of schools in the Diocese of Arundel and Brighton who have come together to work collaboratively for the benefit of all children in the Catholic schools of Sussex. 

Annecy’s three winners received their accolades at the Award’s ceremony on Saturday 6th November at the Jury’s Inn Hotel in Brighton.

The Sussex Teacher of the Year Awards are organised by Inspire Schools and KM Charity Team, with proceeds raised from fundraising at the ceremony going to literacy and road safety projects in the region.
