Can you Spell?

This year, the school will be continuing with our spelling campaign. In addition to our list of 20 words from last year, we have selected 25 new commonly misspelt words and focussed on five of them each week. Having tested a number of the students at the outset of the campaign, we will be re-examining them regularly to assess its effectiveness.


Our School will introduce the following initiatives:
  • Introduce a qualitative and quantative reading programme across the school to ensure that all our students develop a habit of reading,
  • Each teacher will use a literacy checklist to ensure that literacy is embedded in every class,
  • Each Subject Department will teach the key vocabulary/terms to each student,
  • Ensure that each student is offered a regular reading class,
  • Multi language debating opportunities will be offered at all levels
