Curriculum links to KS4

  • There are links with Ashby School and other ACE partnership schools and regular subject meetings are arranged to provide a consistent approach to assessment and curriculum planning. We are working on a number of collaborative projects which link curriculum and assessment across the partnership.
  • GCSE link work is already happening in English, Maths, Science and Computing with other subjects developing their curriculum in light of GCSE developments, through the ACE partnership subject groups.
  • ACE assessment partnership work has provided all subjects with a common curriculum and assessment framework based on GCSE criteria.
