An RE teacher at an independent girls' school will be arriving at school in style after winning a brand new VW Beetle in last month's spot-the-TES contest.

Jacinta Norton, who teaches at Holy Trinity college, in Bromley, Kent, correctly pinpointed The TES in square 4F, on a blue chair to the left of the radiator in the picture.

Clearly a teacher who is happy in her job, Mrs Norton answered: "I can't live without The TES every Friday because it tells me why I do like Mondays."

"I usually use public transport to get to school, so it's going to be wonderful having the Beetle, especially with all the paraphernalia I carry to school with me each day."
