Senior - English as an Additional Language

We offer English as an Additional Language (EAL) lessons to those pupils for whom English is not their first language.  Our aim is to ensure that all the girls within our care have a happy, successful and fulfilling time at the College, and we hope to instil confidence so that they are enabled to cope with university life and beyond.

Our strength lies in our flexibility.  For pupils in Years 7 to 9 we base our lessons on individual needs. Pupils in Years 10 and 11 follow the Edexcel International GCSE in English as a Second Language. We are also able to offer support and guidance for other GCSE subjects.  Year 12 and 13 students concentrate on the IELTS examination for entry to university. 

EAL lessons for girls of all ages build confidence in the four essential skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking as well as extending vocabulary and developing a greater understanding of grammar. 

Girls are always welcome to see us before, during or after school for extra help and support.  We are very proud of our students and their achievements, and enjoy keeping in touch with them after they have left.
