“The whole point of schools is that children come first and everything we do must reflect this single goal.”Sir Michael Wilkins - Academy Principal and Chief Executive
"Word of the Week” is part of the Academy’s ongoing strategy to improve students’ literacy. Students are being taught the importance of language and the need for a good vocabulary, both for their school work and as an essential life skill. "Word of the Week" is shown around school on display monitors and on the website and has been designed to make students confident in their use of a range of complex words and their meanings.
Word of the Week is part of the "Dirty Thirty" - 30 commonly misspelt words which are used to focus on improving students literacy.
