Fairfield High School has been awarded The Prince’s Teaching Institute Mark for the academic year 2015/16.

FHS’s Mathematics and Science departments received the Mark in recognition of their passion, commitment and innovation in teaching the subjects and in acknowledgement of their ability to deliver a curriculum beyond examinations.

Mr Nick Lewis, Head of School at FHS said: “We are delighted to have been awarded the PTI Mark for our Maths and Science department’s innovative work, and will be proud to carry the Mark on our stationery and website as evidence of our commitment to inspirational teaching.”

The Prince’s Teaching Institute (PTI) launched the Schools Programme in 2007 to recognise and reward school departments that develop inspirational ideas and activities which enhance the teaching of Art, English, Geography, History, Latin, Mathematics, Modern Foreign Languages, Music and Science. It is run as a membership group for school departments that choose to commit to increasing the challenge of their subject provision. 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.
