English as an Additional Language

We have a very strong team in our English as an Additional Language (EAL) department, who work alongside pupils needing support to access the school curriculum.

All our EAL lessons are conducted on a one-to-one basis. Our EAL teachers work closely with academic subject teachers and tutors to ensure that EAL students are receiving the specific language support they need. We also help our students prepare for any external examinations such as IELTS, the English proficiency test accepted by British Universities, and provide the internationally recognised Cambridge exams, should the girls wish to take this (PET, FCE and CAE), with the final exam taken at a certified test centre. We aim for all the girls to achieve IELTS 7.5 by the time they leave St George’s ready for university entrance.
