    It honestly depends on the type of article it's for. 'The Promotion of' sounds better.
    I'm not a teacher yet, but I am studying a Bachelor of Education with an English Literature major at Charles Sturt University, in NSW, Australia.

    To be honest, it depends on the content. "The Promotion of XXXX School" might be history of how the school was promoted, advertised, marketed etc, or it might be an explanation of how it is currently being promoted, and how it might be promoted in the future. I am, however, inclined to say that it's a better title than "Promote XXXX School".

    Please note the amendments I made in red. You have made 52 posts on this forum. By now, you should know that every sentence must start with a capital letter and must end with a single punctuation mark. There is no need to put your username at the end of each post.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
