As a school that serves a diverse international community we are very conscious of the need to support students for whom English may be a second or even third language.
These may be very able students and many are particularly gifted linguists. Our specialist EAL teachers provide small group and in-class support to help students to acquire the language needed to enable them to reach their full potential in an English-medium education.
Support is also provided for native English speaking students who need additional assistance to strengthen their literacy skills.
English as a second language is also offered to students as an (i)GCSE option in the Secondary school.
