EAL

EAL (English as an Additional Language)

All students whose first language is not English are enrolled on the EAL programme for English lessons to develop their general English language skills and to help them with English for their subjects.

Students usually have one individual lesson with an EAL teacher per week. This lesson is 50 minutes long. Some students may need more than one individual lesson per week. This will be arranged in consultation with parents and / or guardians. The teacher will design an individual programme of work according to the specific language learning needs of each student. EAL lessons are charged at an hourly rate for individual lessons.

Foreign Language Exams

Overseas students may take an AS examination at the end of the Lower Sixth and an A Level at the end of Upper Sixth in their native language e.g. Chinese, Malay, Indonesian, Russian, Thai and Japanese.
