Year 8 Spelling Words

Most secondary schools in the UK will have weekly spelling tests for their Year 8 pupils.

Spellings become particularly challenging once children reach Year 8 and so to Exam Ninja has produced an enormous Year 8 Spelling List! Here you'll find over 1,250 hard spellings for Year 8 kids, all aligned to the national curriculum in the UK.

This is easily the most comprehensive Year 8 spelling list available. Within it are an enormous variety of words including nouns, adjectives, adverbs, homophones, homographs and more. You can read and use it online or download it as a PDF to print at home.

Our advice is to carefully work through this spelling list throughout Year 8. Try to understand how the words are spelt and try the “look, cover, write and check” strategy to master them.
