Janet Hilary, Headteacher, National Leader of Education and Chief Executive Officer, Floreat Education UK.

"I recommend Sounds-Write to every teacher and school leader I meet. At Floreat we teach Sounds-Write in structured lessons in Nursery and Reception as well as Year 1. We achieve consistently outstanding results and our parents are amazed at how well their children can read and spell.

The training is top quality and all staff use consistent methods to teach phonics, reading and spelling effectively. Teachers love the clarity and effectiveness of the Sounds-Write programme and are highly motivated by the achievement and enjoyment of all learners. Skills are taught explicitly and pupils demonstrate confidence and success from the outset. Progress is rapid and the quality of writing from Reception onwards astonishes visitors from other schools.” 



  • A thorough and structured literacy program for teaching reading and spelling. There were plenty of videos to watch and practise with. The trainers allowed many chances for discussion via video conferences and on the provided discussion board. Very busy, but very worth it.

  • I loved everything about this course! The content, the way it was presented and how I will now be able to use this in my work. Completing the course online was also a very positive experience, the videos were detailed and it was presented very clearly.As someone who had not had a lot of experience teaching those early reading skills, I now feel very confident about how I can systematically teach reading and spelling within my context.

  • I highly recommend the Sounds Write course. The online delivery was outstanding. The theory behind it, practical exercises, quizzes, forum and video examples were very thorough. It is the most comprehensive course I have done on literacy intervention. I found the trainers were passionate and very knowledgeable.

  • "It is the most practical and informative course I have ever been on. It provides lots of opportunity for ideas and suggestions of application in the classroom for all ages."

  • "Sounds-Write saves time. Just be prepared to let go of other phonics/spellings routines because you don't need them when you teach Sounds Write."

  • "Thank you for the outstanding training and the consistency of your messages.  This has helped me with areas of scepticism - and I am no longer a sceptic".

  • "I'd advise people to go and learn this well structured phonics based system to use in your classroom".

  • "The whole course was very helpful but certainly the planning and sequence was useful as well as case studies".

  • "I loved the sequential nature of the program.  The lesson plans and demonstrations of lessons.  It was all very practical and user friendly.  Thank you ladies it was awesome".

  • "You are fantastic presenters !"

  • "I loved the simplicity of the teaching approach of this course and how it allows flexibility to accommodate differences in learners".

  • "There's a lot of information to take in but you are well supported. It is a positive, inspirational course".
