About Us

Wordswork Publications

Wordswork Publications was established in 1998 to produce a range of text books designed as homework programs for English language classes in secondary schools in Australia.

The business was established by two secondary school English teachers, Peter Legge and Jim Wright, who have, collectively, over 50 years of English teaching experience. They have taught at all levels of secondary school and also at primary and tertiary levels. Between them, they have held various senior positions in secondary colleges, including Head of Department, Managers of levels and sub-schools, Curriculum Manager and Professional Development Manager.

Wordswork currently markets its publications to thousands of students in all states and territories of Australia, and in New Zealand. Customers include schools from all sectors of the educational spectrum: government, independent, Catholic and other faith-based schools.

Based on their experience in schools, Peter and Jim recognised a need for regular homework in their English classrooms. They also felt that students were increasingly out of touch with fundamental elements of their own language. As a result, they developed homework sheets and trialled them with their own classes. When these were found to be successful in encouraging students to complete regular homework and develop language skills, Peter and Jim decided to market the programs to other schools.

Due to the changes demanded by the educational market, they have now developed this online, fully interactive, version of their books.
