PTI Hub – Lead School

The PTI is an independent educational charity created by the Prince of Wales. It believes that all children, irrespective of background or ability, deserve a rich subject-based experience at school – both within and beyond the examination curriculum. It believes that young people’s opportunities in life are maximised by having inspiring teachers, who are knowledgeable and passionate about their subjects. It allows teachers to rediscover their love of their subject through Various programmes, and by bringing passionate teachers together, it encourages school departments to make rigorous curriculum choices, promote teaching beyond the test, and enables schools to forge links with other like-minded schools and academic institutions.

PTI South Lakes Hub

PTI Primary Hubs exist to help increase collaboration between local schools, and strengthen subject teaching and subject leadership across the network.

We have worked with local schools to form a Hub to provide excellent training in the South Lakes. We meet three time a year to support our subject leaders develop their subjects to improve learning for all of our children. We work in partnership with 26 Schools to support curriculum leaders to form the South Lakes Hub.
