Mr J. Du Plooy: Kent Teacher of the Year Awards 2018


We are extremely pleased to announce that one of our Biology teachers, Mr J. Du Plooy, won two major awards at the recent Kent Teacher of the Year event.

Mr Du Plooy, pictured above with the School’s Deputy Headteacher, Ms Kelly, was awarded Secondary School Teacher of the Year – Ashford District and then Overall Kent Bioscience Teacher of the Year.

Mr Du Plooy has been at the school for three years. He teaches Biology across all year groups and is also the Achievement Leader for Year 9. He is a fantastic teacher who engages students with fun and challenging tasks. It is great to see him being recognised in this way.  

Many other members of teaching and support staff at NKS were also highly commended for their work in this year’s round of awards.

We would like to thank our students for endorsing so many members of staff this year.
