try to help make the transition to a new school and a strange country
as stress-free as possible for our International Students.
• Before the new International student starts school our Head of
International Students meets the new student and his/her parents, so that
any queries may be answered.
• Each International Student is given a Welcome Book, with lots
of information about school life.
• Multilingual signs around the College make the transition period
less daunting for the new student.
• If the student wishes, he/she can be allocated a Buddy, who will
help with the settling-in process.
• EAL Homework Club is held on Wednesdays after school and on Fridays
• Interpreters are provided for all public events within the school
and also for meetings between teachers and parents of International students.
• International Students are withdrawn from
some classes for extra tuition in English with our EAL Tutor. They are
also given help with subject-specific vocabulary across the curriculum.
• They sit the JetSet exams and, if required, are prepared for the
IELTS exam for university entrance.
• International Students are encouraged to maintain their fluency
in their first language, and if possible, to sit the relevant GCSE.
We see the presence of our International students as an enrichment to
the school. They are encouraged to talk about their culture in school
assemblies, in Citizenship classes, in English orals, etc. They have added
a new dimension to the Integrated Ethos of our College
