Glossary: GPaS


An acronym for grammar, spelling, and punctuation. The 2014 UK National Curriculum formally refers to GPaS, and Englicious opts for this formal appellation. SPaG has become the common colloquial term among many teachers, educationalists, and publishers.

At the end of year 6, students are required to take a GPaS exam. Resources for exam prep can be found on Englicious in the Level menu, under the heading Y6 GPaS Test.


Englicious contains many resources for English language in schools, but the vast majority of them require you to register and log in first. For more information, see What is Englicious?
