Every year on National Thank A Teacher Day we celebrate schools, colleges, teachers and support staff across the country. We also use this day to announce and celebrate the Silver Winners of the Pearson National Teaching Awards.
In 2021, National Thank a Teacher Day was on Wednesday 23rd June and the theme was ‘Stars’. Celebrities, leaders in educations, schools and pupils from across the UK came together to celebrate their teaching heroes, with support from Boris Johnson, David Walliams, Stephen Fry and more! Watch the highlights below…
For National Thank a Teacher Day 2021 we ran a series of celebrity judged competitions which encouraged pupils to celebrate their teachers, with winners receiving a video from their judge and prizes including vouchers and even a limited edition Axel Scheffler artwork.
Fill in the short form and we'll be in touch as soon as we have more plans regarding the 2022 celebrations. We'll also be sure to send you our free downloadable resources.
