Isca Academy

On June 19th, 3.45 - 5.30pm, Isca Academy will be hosting a practice-sharing event for staff with local primary schools entitled ‘Making the Transition’. The aim will be to deepen our respective understanding of the transition process and consider together how we can make this as academically seamless as possible for Exeter students. This is a fantastic opportunity for teachers across the city to enhance their understanding of the primary curriculum, assessment and expectations as well as sharing with primary education colleagues similar information about KS3.  

Attendees from primary and secondary schools are asked to bring two or three examples of student work.
