An Indian-origin teacher Gurnimrat Nimmy Sidhu on 27 May 2015 named for University of Oxford Inspirational Teacher Award.

The award was given to her for helping one of her students get into the world-famous varsity. She had received her trophy in Oxford alongside 11 others, also nominated by their students for their role in getting them admission into one of the world's most prestigious universities.

She is among 12 teachers to win the University of Oxford Inspirational Teacher Award. Currently, she is working as the head of science at Oaks Park High School in north-east London.

The award was set up to encourage more state-funded schools to connect with the university. The scheme was set up by the university to counter criticism of elitism with largely wealthy and privately educated students being able to gain admission.
