Stratsone of Mayfair was delighted to support The Prince's Teaching Institute's Charity Clay Shoot at The Royal Berkshire Shooting School.
The event was organised to raise money to improve teaching standards and tackle educational inequality in state schools. An amazing £25,000 was raised through ticket sales and spending on the day, which included a live auction.
Guests were welcomed at The Royal Berkshire Shooting School with breakfast at 9am. Shooting started at 10am in teams of four, after a briefing from Dylan Williams, Manging Director of RBSS.
At 1pm, a champagne reception was held at the shoot lodge and a sit down three course meal took place at 1:30pm. The live charity auction and prize giving for top team, last team - glorious 12th team, as well as top gun and top lady gun of the day all took place towards the end of the event.
On the day of the event, Stratstone of Mayfair supported the charity by displaying the Jaguar F-Pace and Discovery Sport models. It was a great opportunity for guests to talk to Stratstone team members and learn more about the Jaguar SUV range on offer. These cars were also used to transport guests around the grounds of The Royal Berkshire Shooting School.
"We are glad to have helped support The Prince's Teaching Institute and all the hard work they do for teachers and young people."
- Peter Ward, Head of Business at Stratstone of Mayfair
Having started in 2001 with just 60 members, the Prince's Teaching Institute has worked hard to have now gained over 5,000 teachers. The membership helps teachers to rediscover their love of teaching and supports new ways of thinking around education.
There are several programmes for teachers to be involved with, including New Teacher Subject Days that gives new and trainee teachers the confidence to broaden their teaching range. The Prince's Teaching Institute also holds events during the year for different subjects, which take place all around the country.
As a result, over 520,000 children benefit from improved educational standards each year. Their aim is to have raised £1M which will be used to reach 1 million children over the next five years, with 88p of every pound going directly to the charity.
Every single headteacher that has worked with the trust has said their membership has increased the focus on teaching and learning.
"We are delighted that Stratstone of Mayfair were able to join us for the event and we would like to thank them for their generosity and support".
- Augusta Ivory-Peters, Development Co-Ordinator at The Prince's Teaching Institute.
