Language support for students not fluent in English

Students who do not speak English as their first language can access additional support through our English as an Additional Language (EAL) programme up to, and including, Year 9. English levels are measured by using assessments that link to the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) so that we can best meet the needs of each student. The students are assessed in their speaking, listening, reading and writing proficiency in English and the scores determine the level of support needed.

Mandarin (EYFS, Primary and Secondary school, GCSE, IBDP)
French (Secondary school and GCSE, IBDP)
Spanish (GCSE, IBDP)
