Spellzone has become an important strand of our literacy strategy.

Millthorpe School, York"We are noticing a far more positive attitude towards spelling among our students – many are transferring the skills learned to their own written work."

We became interested in Spellzone following a recommendation from a colleague in another secondary school. Having been using the free Spellzone resources (mostly worksheets), for a number of years, I was very keen to see what the online programme consisted of. The Spellzone staff were extremely helpful during our trial period and as I explored the site, I was very impressed by its potential.

We began Spellzone for Years 9 and 10 in September 2018 and have found that students really enjoy using it as part of their library lesson. There is little resistance to completing their 30-minute weekly Spellzone homework.

Although no formal assessments have yet taken place, we are noticing a far more positive attitude towards spelling among our students – many are transferring the skills learned to their own written work.

Our staff appreciate how easy it is to view and evaluate student activity and to monitor closely who is logging on and when. Several classes enjoy the competitive element as their teacher explains who has completed most pages/activities/logins.

Spellzone has become an important strand of our literacy strategy and will be rolled out to Years 7, 8 and 9 in the near future.

"I would like to thank you so much for this great website. I have always been ashamed of my spelling but after a few lessons I am already better. It is filling in all the gaps. Thanks."
