LYDNEY teacher Rachael Keeble spent yesterday at Number 10 giving the Prime Minister an education masterclass.

The primary teacher was invited to Downing Street after winning a teaching Oscar.

Rachael's feet have hardly touched the ground since Sunday when she won the outstanding new teacher prize at the Pearson Teaching Awards 2011.

Since then the 23-year-old has been interviewed on national radio and appeared on Breakfast TV.

It's also been an amazing journey for staff, pupils and parents at Severnbanks Primary School in Lydney, 37 of who went with her to the televised final in London.

Pupils had been sworn to secrecy since Doctor Who sidekick Alex Kingston, who plays River Song in the series, popped into the primary to present Rachael with her prize several weeks ago.

Rachael impressed the judges by turning her classroom into a Tardis and the youngsters could hardly believe their luck when one of the stars from their favourite TV series turned up at assembly.
