The Macclesfield Academy Learning Community (MALC) is a vibrant partnership of the Academy and its partner primary schools: Ash Grove, Gawsworth, Hollinhey, Ivy Bank, Parkroyal and Wincle. Together we work on a variety of issues of benefit to us all, including assessment, provision for the most able, S.E.N.D, staff training and holiday schools. Our transition programme is an important part of this partnership and ensures that all of our Year 7 children join us with a strong sense of what it is like to be an Academy student.
