The Radclyffe School

The Award for Teacher of the Year in a Secondary School

Since his appointment three years ago, Daniel has made a huge impact, not only on the Music Department, but also the wider aspects of the school life and student community.

He is an outstanding practitioner and gives absolutely everything to ensuring learning and teaching is of the very highest standard within music lessons. As a result, music provision and attainment at The Radclyffe School has increased dramatically. The students are at the forefront of everything he does and he is one of the most popular teachers in school. Mr Corrigan is committed to ensuring the school is at the heart of the community through his boundless energy and enthusiasm.

Mr Corrigan never ceases to inspire all those around him. In lessons, the students are left wanting more and in extra-curricular activities, they can’t wait for the next opportunity.
