A STUDLEY teacher is saying pupils who have just received their GSCE results should say thank you to their hard working teachers.

Jordan Hobbis, from Studley High School, wants pupils to take a moment to recognise teachers that have supported them over the year.

The move is part of a Get Into Teaching campaign, which aims to highlight the difference good teachers can make, and demonstrate how rewarding a career in teaching can be.

Mr Hobbis said: "Witnessing students reach their potential, whether it’s through a small achievement in one lesson or the culmination of all their hard work on results day, is one of the most rewarding elements of being a teacher.

“As a teacher you don’t expect praise when you are working every day with students - you just aim to do the very best job you can.

"However, when they do take a moment to thank you, it reminds you of the part you’ve played in helping to shape their lives, which is a hugely rewarding feeling."

He added: "I would encourage others to say ‘thank you’ - it will stay with them for years to come.”

Roger Pope, from the campaign, said: “A simple thank you might not seem like much, but taking the time to share thanks can mean so much to the teachers who work hard to encourage, inspire and support students, every day."
