Word of the Week

Every week students will be presented with a Word of the Week. The words are chosen from a list of High Incidence Academic Words. The Academic Words have been selected because they are essential for students to gain understanding of  GCSE level texts. Staff will use and/or display the words during  lessons. Each half-term, students will be tested on Words of the Week in their Form Time.
