A celebration of some of the nations best teachers saw a local name feature last night.
Head of geography at Gravesend Grammar School, Chris Jesson, picked up the school trip champion award at the School Travel Awards on Thursday.
Newsreader Fiona Bruce presented the popular teacher with his award, which comes with a £1,000 prize.
Speaking at the ceremony, the year 11 form tutor said: “I’m pretty overwhelmed.
“I was not expecting to win at all, we go to Iceland every year for geography, but after winning the prize money for the school I think we will consider going a bit further.”
