German language teachers honoured with prestigious German Teacher Award 2021

Showcasing excellent teaching of German in UK schools, the German Teacher Award is organised by the German Embassy in London. It honours first-class and inspiring language teaching inside and outside the classroom. Usually, the awards are presented at a ceremony at the residence of the German Ambassador in London. However, due to the pandemic, this year the winners were announced online.

We are extremely proud that our very own Erica Schwiening was announced as one of the winners.

“We are delighted that Erica has won this prestigious award.  Erica has inspired so many students, giving them a love of the German language and culture.  Students and teachers at County High know how lucky they have been to work with Erica and we are grateful to her for her wonderful lessons and her commitment to extra-curricular activities and trips.”    Polly Lankester, Headteacher
