Welcome to the English as an additional language department (EAL).

We support the students who have arrived from other countries and who need some additional help to improve their English.

We are lucky to have so many students from different parts of the world, coming with a wide range of experiences and we learn a lot about each other's countries! There are over 40 languages spoken by the students in the academy and many staff are bilingual too.

The EAL Team are here to help you settle in to the academy and we will support you to improve your English in small group interventions and by supporting you in-class to help you understand the lessons.

We look forward to meeting you!
