Literacy and numeracy focus

The academy believes that scholars' enjoyment, academic success and future opportunities depend upon them being highly literate and numerate. The academy has a range of consistent expectations that students meet every day:

High standards (tracking and focusing on the person who is speaking; using full sentences and standard English at all times)

Mastery (expanding vocabulary through 'word of the week' and weekly spelling tests; use of dictionaries in ALL lessons)

Practice (regular fun and competitive practice of times tables; 30 minutes of reading for pleasure every day; having a DEAR book on them at all times).

I spent a few hours with Y10 students from yesterday, telling them about Chemistry degrees. We talked about chemistry in the environment, in medical technologies, in cancer therapy, in space and in forensics. Apparently they had a fantastic time, and so did I! @UoBChem
