About the networks

We are pleased to share that many of our network meetings are now being facilitated ONLINE via Zoom!  In 2021-22, we aspire to offer a mix of Zoom and face to face meetings to offer as many schools the opportunity to engage in our networks.

Come together with like-minded colleagues to share ideas and good practice, and explore challenges and opportunities by attending this sequence of network meeting held three times during the academic year (Nov, Feb/Mar, and June/July).

Where previous networks have already taken place, colleagues have benefitted from valuable discussions from some or all of the following areas:

  • Developing strategies, and sharing ideas
  • Exam moderation, Exam Boards and Resources
  • Sharing resources and exemplar material
  • Curriculum changes, challenges and planning
  • Progression through KS3-5, The New Syllabus
  • Assessment, and challenges through KS3-5
