We aim to ensure that our students have the ability to use both written and verbal communication.

Enabling students to have the language skills required to learn effectively is a priority at Northgate High School. We aim to ensure that our students have the ability to use both written and verbal communication so they can understand and interact confidently with the world around them.

In using the resources included in this section of the website, we hope that students will take greater responsibility for their own language development and strengthen their independent learning skills.

However, these resources are not solely for student use: many of them can be used by parents and carers to support students’ development and actively engage them in embedding the skills they learn at school.
