Bec Hyndman, Curriculum Leader for RE, recently received the honour of an Inspirational Teacher Award from Pembroke College, Oxford. The awards celebrate teachers who have helped students from state schools or colleges gain a place at Pembroke. Bec was nominated by her former Theology student, Niall Hall, who is currently in his second year studying Theology and Philosophy at Pembroke. Niall commented that ‘Mrs Hyndman brought my subject to life. She surpassed the requirements and expectations. Mrs Hyndman was instrumental to the success of many students, including myself, and I would like to celebrate this. I want to thank her for all she does; I had a sixth-form teacher who brought me to Oxford’.
