Education is the business of developing minds for the future, but unlike most businesses we often find that schools fail to co-ordinate learning across all departments and therefore fall short of producing a fully rounded end product.

Lisa's mission is to transform thinking around curriculum and education to ensure that the disparity from one subject to another does not lead to a disparity in young people?s understanding and readiness for the future. Learning, Lisa believes, should be co-ordinated across departments and she shows the world how it's done in her new book, Manglish: Bringing Maths and English Together Across the Curriculum.

The book shows how maths and English departments can develop creative, cross-curricular approaches to improving literacy and numeracy across the whole school and provides practical ideas and strategies to improve both. Covers: creative teaching, cross-curricular planning, collaboration, collaborative teaching, whole child development, literacy, numeracy and skills development.

For Key Stage 3 teachers across all subject areas, and school leaders with an interest in or responsibility for curriculum planning.


Lisa Ashes is an experienced Professional Development provider for all things teaching and learning. An Advanced Skills English Teacher by trade, she specialises in literacy across the curriculum. Her mission is to eradicate pupils being let down by a disjointed secondary curriculum and to share as widely as possible her experience, showing how change is possible. Lisa has worked in many roles in school from classroom support to leadership. Her ability to create collaborative curriculums that allow all learning to be taken forward, used and improved comes from her many and varied experiences in schools.
