Learning Support & EAL

Learning Support & EAL

Supporting pupils to learn and fulfil their potential is a key part of the role of College.   

Tutors and House staff provide a high level of pastoral and academic support including one to one tutoring,  mentoring sessions, revision clinics, study skills groups  and  regular reviews. It is a framework that enables every individual to flourish academically and achieve their best.  

It is also a  framework that allows us to monitor progress and  quickly identify where a pupil would benefit from specific support or the help of specialist teachers.   

Learning support provision  

Where we identify the need for additional support, we provide learning support lessons. As well as building knowledge, these lessons  encourage independence by targeting specific skills and exploring a range of techniques and strategies for individual learning styles.   

English as an Additional Language

College’s international  pupils  for whom English is not their first language receive additional support. We have a department dedicated to ensuring  our international pupils develop the necessary language skills and confidence to integrate fully into classroom and College life.   

If your child is joining us at 13+, we will assess his or her language skills before they start so we can provide tailored support in the form of small group lessons.  Students joining  us at 16+  wishing  to  continue to university in this country  will be  entered for the IELTS examination, which is a pre-requisite qualification,  and receive specialist support to  help them prepare.
