The evidence-based approach to accelerating progress in writing

Skills for Writing embeds the principles of the Grammar for Writing pedagogy - trialled and proven to accelerate the rate of writing progress significantly.

  • Accelerate progress in writing with this new solution based on a proven-to-work pedagogy, improving writing performance for a clear route to KS4 success.
  • Teach grammar in a contextualised way, always focusing on effects achieved, so students have a wider range of techniques with which to craft creative, effective texts. This is not just another grammar course.
  • Provide engaging and interactive lessons - explore the Student Books on screen and the many digital resources focused on building grammatical knowledge and improving writing
  • Motivate your students to write independently - encourage students to reflect on their writing and understand how to improve with our range of auto-marked activities.
