EAL / EFL provision
ESOL is the study of the English language for those whose first language is not English.  Pupils can follow courses leading to the internationally recognised Cambridge ESOL examinations at First Certificate level and Preliminary English Test level.  Pupils wishing to go to university in an English speaking country can follow a course leading to the IELTS examination.

Entry requirements for international students
We work on the recommendation of our School Representative as they have met with the family. We ask for a copy of their current school report and also a recommendation from their Headteacher. We would also ask for a piece of written work. If they can, we would warmly welcome the families to visit and have a meeting with the Principal and tour of the school.
