Posted On: 10/10/14

The English department and the History department have both been awarded the Prince’s Teaching Institute Mark.The PTI rewards school departments that develop inspirational ideas and activities which enhance the teaching. To become members, school departments must demonstrate their commitment to increasing teachers’ subject knowledge, and to furthering their students’ understanding of and enthusiasm for the subject, regardless of their background or ability.

To achieve the PTI Mark, departments then have to demonstrate that they have increased the challenge within their subject curriculum; developed their staff’s own specialist subject knowledge; developed subject-based links outside school; and enthused their pupils through subject-based activities beyond the curriculum.

The Headmaster comments: ‘The award recognises the stimulating and innovative work in the departments and confirms the high regard in which they are held, both within and outside the school. CRGS is committed to continuous improvement and the pursuit of excellence, and Mrs Drake and Mr Clark deserve great credit for leading the departmental work in this area and securing this award for the school.’
