We are delighted to have been awarded The Prince's Teaching Institute (PTI) Mark in recognition of the work of the Science Department during 2015/16.
The Prince's Teaching Institute launched the Schools Programme in 2007 to recognise and reward school departments that develop inspirational ideas and activities, which enhance teaching. It is run as a membership group for school departments that choose to commit to increasing the challenge of their subject provision.
To become a member, the Science Department has demonstrated its commitment to increasing teachers' subject knowledge, and to furthering students' understanding of, and enthusiasm for, science regardless of their background or ability. To achieve the PTI Mark, the Science Department has demonstrated that it has increased the challenge within their subject; developed staff's own specialist subject knowledge; developed subject-based links outside school; and enthused students through subject-based activities beyond the curriculum.
The Science Department continues its work with the PTI. They are building on the work already completed to meet the aims of the PTI through a challenging and enriching curriculum and wider science experience for students in the Science Department at Lady Manners School.
Well done to the Science Department!
