The students work hard on their English skills at Skipton. Each morning is devoted to increasing their literary range, especially in reading and writing. These skills are incorporated throughout other curriculum areas.
The school takes part in a Writer's Festival every year and celebrates writing with Writing Walls in its school corridors.
Students across all year levels take part in a Reading and Writing block every morning, from 9am-11am. Students in Prep to 3 classes take part in a Word Study program each day too (Sounds Write for the younger ones) to support their development in literacy.
