Overseas Students

Overseas Students

We welcome enquiries from overseas students who wish to join Years 3 – 10 or Sixth Form.  There are currently a small number of overseas students and we maintain a good balance of British and international students in the boarding houses.

English as an Additional Language (EAL)

All students will be taught in English and are therefore required to have a good working knowledge of English.  We are not a language school, but English as an Additional Language (EAL) is provided by experienced teachers for those that require it. Additional charges are applicable.

The EAL Department has a successful history of providing both general English language tuition throughout the school and EAP (English for Academic Purposes) in Years 12 and 13.  We support international students with their curriculum subjects, and prepare final year students for external English language qualifications including IELTS, Cambridge CAE and SAT.

Curriculum

Overseas students follow the same curriculum as British students and they work towards General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE) examinations in Years 10 and 11.  In the Sixth Form they will proceed to Advanced (AS and A) Level examination courses before applying to university.  Assistance to take GCSE examinations in their own language will be given where possible.

Guardians

All students whose parents reside overseas are required to have a suitable educational guardian.  This is someone with whom they can reside during half term holidays or weekends when the school closes and who can act in case of emergency.  It is the responsibility of parents to arrange their daughter’s guardian and not the school.  It is imperative that the school is kept up to date of any changes of guardianship.
