The Oxford English Dictionary for Schools is easy to use with its
clear signposting, accessible design, and expertly levelled look
and feel. Now students can and will find the words they want fast!
It has extensive vocabulary including all cross-curriculum words,
so it is ideal for preparing for Controlled Assessments. It is
powered by the Oxford Children's Corpus, a unique electronic
database of millions of words written for children. Added extras in
this dictionary are the language panels for project work, synonyms
for overused words to develop wide-ranging language skills, and
citations. Real example sentences from the best children's books
and teenage fiction show students how to use language most
effectively. There are inspiring examples from authors such as
David Almond, Philip Pullman, William Golding, Anthony Horowitz,
Beverley Naidoo, and many more from the curriculum reading lists.
Free downloadable learning resources, word games, puzzles, and much
more are available for additional online support at
