Being competent and confident in literacy ensures that you will be confident across the rest of your studies, and as such, it is built into all subject areas across our curriculum. Good literacy and communication skills are also key to unlocking many potential future careers.

 We encourage our students to read as a leisure activity. Reading is proven to raise literacy standards and it will support your progress. It’s something we promote across our subjects.

We’ll give you feedback on these skills as you go, including how to improve spelling, grammar and written communication skills.

 Developing your vocabulary is important, too. Our ‘word of the week’ is a fun and educational way to develop a love for language. You’ll see some weird and wonderful words around the building and will be encouraged to use them during lesson time and with your mentor.
