Who uses Wordshark?

At school

Wordshark is used mainly by teachers in Primary schools. It is particularly popular with SENCOs working with students who have dyslexia or other special educational needs.

Wordshark is an ideal choice for the catch-up premium and for teaching KS3 vocabulary in Secondary schools.

Any school with EAL students can also make great use of Wordshark.

International schools invest in Wordshark for all of the above, and find that the program adapts well to any English language curriculum.


At home

Teaching professionals recommend Wordshark to parents, particularly to support children with dyslexia.

The program is highly flexible, making it suitable for other siblings in the family too.

Wordshark is mostly used with ages 5-11 but is also suitable for age 12 upwards where a child has fallen behind or English is not their first language.

In addition to the 10,000 words in Wordshark, you can also add your own word lists – fantastic for learning homework spellings.

Wordshark is an extremely popular choice with home educators.
