The Prince’s Teaching Institute Mark


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.


Postponement of Prof. Winston Lecture

Unfortunately Professor Winston has been requested to attend an overseas trip at short notice for his new television show and so he will not be able to give his lecture on Tuesday 21st June. It’s disappointing as we have had a tremendous response to the lecture. The Professor is extremely sorry to have to cancel and he is keen to reschedule the lecture as soon as possible. 

As the School calendar is very busy between now and the end of term the lecture will be rescheduled for October. Exact date tbc.  If you have advised the Development Office you are attending then your names are on the list to attend and your place is secure.  When a new date is confirmed we will be in touch and we will simply transfer your attendance to the new date unless you advise us otherwise.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused.
