London (PRWEB UK) 20 December 2012
• Established by Caroline Nash in 2012
- Development of Key Stage 3 and Primary curricula
- Implemented in Millbank Academy and Pimlico Academy
- Support for teachers
Caroline Nash recently announced the opening of The Curriculum Centre (TCC). Caroline is currently Governor of Pimlico Academy (http://www.pimlicoacademy.org), trustee of Future (onlinefuture.org), and Chair of Pimlico Primary (http://www.pimlicoacademy.org/pimlico-primary) and Millbank Academy (webfronter.com/westminster/millbank).
Based in the City of Westminster, London, The Curriculum Centre (thecurriculumcentre.org) is responsible for the development of the Key Stage 3 curriculum at Pimlico Academy and the Primary curriculum at Millbank Academy and the upcoming Pimlico Primary. The centre oversees what content is taught in lessons and is dedicated to supporting teachers as specialists in their chosen subjects with a content rich curriculum aimed at preparing students for tougher examinations.
Caroline Nash says:-"Our new curriculum should ensure that our students become richly culturally literate and are fully prepared for the tougher exams that are coming."
Millbank Academy is currently using a curriculum prepared by TCC as is Pimlico Academy in Year 7. Pimlico Primary will also adopt the same knowledge led curriculum when it opens in September 2013. It is hoped that other schools will also adopt the same (or similar) curricula over time.
As a sponsor of Pimlico Academy and Pimlico Primary Caroline Nash has a vested interest in ensuring teachers have the correct support in order to teach pupils the knowledge and skills they will need within each subject area.
The Curriculum Centre works with Senior Leadership and teachers to provide ongoing development of, and updates to, the Key Stage 3 curriculum; as well as training opportunities to ensure Pimlico Academy maintains its specialism in History. The school also excels in Music, Drama, Art, and Visual and Performing Arts.
TCC will also oversee the curriculum at Millbank Academy and Pimlico Primary to provide the best support to teachers and pupils, helping make their transition from primary school to Pimlico Academy as seamless as possible.
Daisy Christodoulou, the CEO of The Curriculum Centre, discusses the ongoing work at the centre, including information on events and seminars for teachers who wish to learn about how to make use of the content rich material available within the curriculum.
