English as an Additional Language

The EAL (English as Additional Language) team welcomes and supports new arrivals and students who speak other languages at home.

We prepare and enter students for their community languages in GCSE and A Level examinations, and celebrate students national days.

We provide interpreting and translating services, including sign-language, for parents who cannot speak English.
