English as an Additional Language
Our EAL department provides specialist academic support to all international students. Once you have enrolled your English language skills in speaking, listening, reading and writing will be tested and based on your results an individual programme will be carefully designed for you and delivered across lessons throughout the week.
For those that require it, we will create a tailored programme that will help you gain the confidence and skills needed to study in school and communicate effectively in daily life. Our EAL classes are purposely kept small to ensure you have the individual attention and support you require. Once your level of English is strong enough to forego EAL lessons you will then concentrate on mainstream curriculum English Language and English Literature.
When you reach the appropriate level you will be entered for IELTS or one of the University of Cambridge English language examinations which are recognised throughout the world.
