Amersham and Chesham MP Dame Cheryl Gillan has paid tribute to the hard work of teachers on Thank a Teacher Day.

The day is marked each year and provides an opportunity for current and former students to celebrate the impact that teachers have on students’ lives.

Dame Cheryl Gillan MP said: “An inspirational teacher has a profound effect – not only on students’ academic achievements, but on their self-confidence and ambition too.

“There can be no great schools without great teachers, and I am consistently struck by the passion and dedication of teachers working in schools across Chesham & Amersham – ensuring that all our children can fulfil their potential.
