Award-winning head teacher Eddie Gaynor rubbed shoulders with other top educators at the House of Commons on Tuesday at a reception to honour the winners of this year’s prestigious Pearson Teaching Awards.

Eddie, who leads the team at Grovehill’s Astley Cooper School, has been named the top secondary school head in the East of England after making a big impact since becoming head 18 months ago.

Hemel Hempstead MP Mike Penning was on hand to offer his congratulations, and Eddie also met secretary of state for education Michael Gove.

The next date in the diary is the national awards ceremony in October, when all 62 regional winners across a range of categories will be hoping to take the top honours.
