The Prince’s Teaching Institute Mark

princesteachinginstituteart-2016-002

The Aylesbury Grammar School Art Department is pleased to receive The Prince’s Teaching Institute Mark for the second consecutive year.

This award recognises the Art Department’s commitment to increasing teachers’ subject knowledge, and to furthering the students’ understanding of and enthusiasm for the subject, regardless of their background or ability. To achieve the PTI Mark, departments 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 enthuse their students through subject-based activities beyond the curriculum.
