Lexia/Power up


Lexia is an online learning platform which Amersham School offers to all Year 7 students, as well as select students in Year 8 and above. The learning can be done independently, at home and in school, and provides a fun and interactive way of developing essential Literacy skills. Teachers assist students by monitoring progress, rewarding achievements and providing support where necessary. Now is our fourth year of using Lexia at Amersham School and our students who make regular use of the programme have become more confident in their Literacy across all subject areas.
