The personal finance editor of the Mail on Sunday and columnist for Moneywise, Mr Jeff Prestridge, said that Mrs Butler: “Was prepared to go out and take her classes to the local bank. It’s very important for kids to see the financial world in action.

“I loved the ‘good vs bad’ focus on debt. I was really impressed with her.”

Mr Seagull agrees: “She shares her personal experience to make her projects grounded and is willing to really take her students on trips that show finance in action. She has engaged many students across different year groups.”

We are very proud to have the talents of our teachers acknowledged by such a prestigious group of judges.
