Phonics instruction helps children learn the relationships between the letters of written language and the sounds of spoken language. Children are taught, for example, that the letter d represents the sound /d/, and that it is the first letter in words such as dive, dice and dew.
Children's reading development is dependent on their understanding of the alphabetic principle — the idea that letters and letter patterns represent the sounds of spoken language. Learning that there are predictable relationships between sounds and letters allows children to apply these relationships to both familiar and unfamiliar words, and to begin to read with fluency.
Children will be introduced to various types of books such as alphabet, read-aloud, decodable and sound/symbol books to name a few. Children will be immersed into a wide world of stories and will acquire the skills related to inferring, making predictions and drawing conclusions. Moreover, through poetry, nursery rhymes and songs they will enhance their literary understanding and love for reading.
At Ace we teach our students to be confident, challenged and motivated. Our in-house curriculum adopts a holistic and interdisciplinary approach to further improve students’ knowledge and skills in core subjects studied in international schools, as well as the local school curriculum.

Reading & Comprehension (inferral / critical reading):
Our Chinese program encourage and enable students to develop an understanding of an additional language while supporting maintenance of their mother tongue. Students are taught to develop a respect and understanding of the language through reading, writing, speaking and listening to the Chinese Language. Through cultural themes and everyday topics students are again to gain proficiency and bridge the gap of Chinese learnt at school.
At Ace we aim for the year ahead by stimulating, reinforcing and helping develop math skills – Number & Algebra, Geometry & Measurement, Statistics and Problem Solving. Key concepts are reinforced through constant practice.

It fosters the development of skills for communication, intercultural understanding and global engagement—essential qualities for young people who are becoming global leaders. We offer a vast range of MYP.
The MYP mathematics framework encompasses number, algebra, geometry and trigonometry, statistics and probability.
Design challenges all students to apply practical and creative thinking skills to explore and develop distinct digital and product design.
Language Acquisition in the MYP aims to encourage students to gain competence in an additional language with the long-term goal of multilingualism. We offer French, Mandarin and Spanish.
The MYP english language and literature courses develop skills in six areas: Listening, speaking, reading, writing, viewing and presenting.
Learners are taught the necessary skills to inquire into historical, contemporary, geographical, political, social, economic, religious, technological and cultural factors that have an impact on individuals, societies and environments.
MYP sciences courses usually include biology, chemistry and physics, but schools may develop and offer other sciences courses that meet the subject group’s aims and objectives.

The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) is a two-year educational programme primarily aimed at 16 to 18 year olds. Students taking the IB Diploma choose six subjects to study, normally three at Higher Level and three at Standard Level. The maximum score awarded for the IB Diploma is 45 points. Each subject is awarded a maximum of 7 points, and there are a maximum of 3 further points available for Theory of Knowledge (ToK) and Extended Essay (EE). Students also have to complete a CAS (Creativity, Action and Service) programme. A number of students also choose to take the Bilingual IB Diploma. The programme provides an internationally accepted qualification for entry into higher education and is recognized by many universities worldwide.
Our experienced IB tutors implement effective techniques and teaching methods to help students through this challenging journey. We also guide our students through internal assessments (IA), Theory of Knowledge (TOK) and the Extended Essay (EE).
The General Certificate of Education (GCE) A / AS-level examinations is a qualification offered by Pearson Edexcel and Cambridge Assessment International Education. It is offered across a range of subjects to students usually aged 16-18 years old and is graded from A*-E.
A-levels are studied across two years: AS year (Year 12) and A2 year (Year 13). There is an option to study a subject for one year and achieve an AS-level qualification that’s independent from those subjects that is carried on with to the full A-level. This ‘extra’ AS-level is normally taken in the first year, so students can focus 100% on their A-levels in their second year. If the AS subject is continued on into A2 year, then it will be pursued further for the full A-level qualification. Usually, students:
We offer English Language, Literature and Language & Literature. By learning through ACE we will enable students to build on the skills they've developed at GCSE, by engaging creatively and critically with a wide range of texts and discourses from a wide range of different periods and cultures.
A-level Maths provides students with a thorough grounding in the mathematical tools and techniques often needed in the workplace. The logic and reasoning skills developed by studying A-level Maths make sure the qualification is widely respected even in non-mathematical arenas.

The Business and Technology Education Council (BTEC) is a provider (existing as part of Pearson Education Ltd) of secondary school leaving qualifications and further education qualifications.
The grading for BTEC qualifications is Distinction (D), Merit (M), Pass (P) with D* awarded for exceptional performance. Students achieving at the highest level obtain qualifications equal to 490 UCAS points (34/35 IB points).
BTEC qualifications, especially Level 3, are accepted by many universities (excluding Cambridge, Oxford and UCL unless combined with more qualifications) when assessing the suitability of applicants for admission, and many such universities base their conditional admissions offers on a student's predicted BTEC grades.
Students taking the International Diploma follow a career-orientated applied learning pathway and work towards a Level 3 Extended Diploma.
Our expert tutors guide and assist students through any challenges that they may face along this adopted pathway. We offer tuition in the:
