English Immersion Programmes

English Immersion Programmes

Pupils with little or no knowledge of English may be admitted to the school to join our English Immersion Programmes, which last between a term to a whole academic year. Pupils focus their efforts in learning English in order to raise their linguistic competence to such a level which allows them to operate in the mainstream class.

PRIMARY INMERSION PROGRAMME: for pupils from Year 1 to Year 4

Pupils follow 2 or more lessons a day of intensive tuition in English and Mathematics, separate from the mainstream class, in small groups.

ENGLISH ACCESS COURSE: for pupils from Year 7 onwards

During three months, pupils follow a highly intensive one-term course designed so that students strengthen their knowledge and understanding of the language and develop the skills needed to access the rest of the curriculum.
