School Awards for Teaching Excellence

Our lecturers are teaching-innovators and we take pride that many of our staff are award-winning lecturers, nominated by our own students. Over the past few years our staff have been nominated for, and won a number of Student-Led Teaching Awards. In 2017 our school won the inaugural 'School of the Year' Award. We are proud of the achievements of all our staff in delivering teaching excellence across the school, and it's great to know that our students think so too!
