English as an Additional Language helps our overseas students to improve their level of English and supports them across all of their school subjects.
Improving your level of English will not only be useful in itself, but also allows the pupil to understand all of their subjects to a higher level.
EAL lessons take place instead of, or as well as, Modern Foreign Languages.
Pupils sit the Edexcel IGCSE in ESOL at the end of year 11.
The pupils prepare for the IELTS test. When we think they are ready to achieve a 6.5 or above, they are entered for the test, which they may sit in Birmingham or their home country during the holidays.
EAL trips to places of interest in the Midlands and beyond take place at least once a term.
