Literacy & Spelling
Language is the medium through which students learn and express themselves and good literacy skills are a vital component of personal and intellectual development. All students benefit from the development of high-level skills in literacy; such development is essential if students are to achieve their potential in any given subject. It is vital that students are equipped with the skills and knowledge they need for life beyond school and teachers at AGS encourage students to read, write, speak and listen with increasing effectiveness in order to achieve their potential.
