Teaching & Learning

At Acle Academy we offer a broad and balanced curriculum, which offers our students the opportunity to develop their skills and knowledge across a range of subjects. 

This is achieved through quality first teaching and having high expectations of our students.

When designing our Key Stage 3 curriculum we have looked at the skills and knowledge needed in Key Stage 4 and made sure they embedded through the curriculum in lower years. This will ensure that students are fully prepared for the rigour of the GCSE course.
