LRGS wins teaching award

Published on isbi School News dated Tuesday 18th of October 2011

Lancaster Royal Grammar School has recently received The Prince's Teaching Institute Mark, in recognition of teaching that develops inspirational ideas and activities. The Prince's Teaching Institute (PTI) launched the Schools Programme in 2007 to recognise and reward teaching of English, History, Geography, Science and Mathematics, regardless of pupils' backgrounds or abilities. It is run as a membership group for school departments that choose to commit to increasing the challenge of their subject provision.

The English and History departments at LRGS received the Mark in recognition of teaching carried out in 2009/10. The PTI's Schools Programme is open to all state secondary schools in England. 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 challenges within the 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.

Andrew Jarman, Headmaster of LRGS, said: 'We are delighted to have been awarded the PTI Mark for our History department's innovative work, and will be proud to carry the Mark on our website as evidence of our commitment to inspirational teaching.'
