Outstanding Teaching Award

School awarded Mark for outstanding teaching.

William Farr Church of England Comprehensive School have been awarded the PTI Subject Leadership Programme Mark for outstanding teaching in English.

Jonathan Knowler, Headteacher of the school said: “We are delighted to have been awarded the PTI Mark for our English department’s innovative work and their commitment to inspirational teaching.”

The PTI’s Subject Leadership 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 have to demonstrate that they have increased the challenge within their subject curriculum, developed their staff’s specialist subject knowledge, developed subject-based links outside school and enthused their pupils through subject-based activities beyond the curriculum.

Nicola Bentley, Senior Programmes Manager the PTI, said: “We are delighted to celebrate William Farr’s success by awarding them our Mark of excellence.”
