Part of The Bridge

Welcome to the English as an Additional Language Department. We aim to support students with their English language acquisition in order to ensure they make accelerated progress in mainstream subjects. As a school we celebrate our diverse community – we speak over 50 languages! Our team recognises the different needs and aims to provide a curriculum that relates to students’ backgrounds as well as their diverse needs.
Our team developed a range of support programmes, interventions and strategies which are in place to support all students, from newly arrived who are New to English to more advanced learners, who may require a little more help with their vocabulary, grammar or reading comprehension.
We are proud to be able to offer a full Induction Programme which assesses pupils needs and aims to provide the appropriate amount of support as soon as possible. Whilst at the same time, the programme addresses the wellbeing of students, ensuring they are happy and settled in their new environment.
We offer a range of interventions during school time as well as after school:
