English as an Additional Language (EAL)

We welcome students from all over the world into our diverse school community.  They bring literacy in their first language, their educational and life experiences and cultural diversity, which we celebrate.  There is a whole-school approach to working with new arrivals, and both pastoral and teaching staff strive to ensure that cultural, linguistic and academic needs are met and that the positive contribution these students can make is recognised and celebrated. Students come with different needs and different abilities in English language acquisition and each one of our young people is supported to reach their potential.
