We support students for whom English is an Additional Language, in order to facilitate their access to the mainstream curriculum.
We offer language support to those at an early stage of learning English, as well as to students who have more advanced language skills. This support takes a variety of forms depending on the level of need.
Our new arrivals will be taught additional lessons of English Language to include the four key skills of: reading,writing, listening and speaking as well as grammar, vocabulary and punctuation.
Our students will have access to Rosetta Stone to develop their English Language speaking, listening and comprehension skills at home.
We will also encourage our students who speak an additional language to sit a GCSE in their home language.
