There are 33 nations represented in the final 50, selected from more than 30,000 nominations and applications made from 173 countries.

Ms Humby has introduced an "enrichment charter" at her school to give pupils different life experiences, such as residential trips, theatre and sport visits, and trips overseas, including to Kenya.

Ms Pond is one of four teachers from the United Kingdom in the top 50, in a shortlist drawn from more than 30,000 nominations.

Ms Zafirakou has learnt to speak several languages so she can communicate with pupils, has set up art projects, designed a curriculum that relates to her students' lives and got to know their families as well as helping launch community projects such as a Somali choir.
