Our English as an Additional Language (EAL) department supports those pupils who join Abberley Hall with a first language other than English. New pupils are accessed individually upon arrival so we can quickly establish their level of spoken and written English.
We have a qualified EAL teacher who analyses the needs and expectations of each child as they enter the school. This approach enables the individual to get the most out of their time here and achieve their potential both academically and socially.
Children who come to Abberley for an academic year are encouraged to take the internationally-recognised Cambridge PET level examination.
In 2019 Abberley Hall students had 100% Pass for PET with 60% Merits and 100% First Certificate
Our 2019/20 charges for the EAL lessons are as follows:-
Individual lesson 50 mins of tuition - £30 per pupil these are scheduled into the pupil’s individual timetable, often as an alternative to French or Latin.
Conversational Practice 20 mins (from small groups up to 4 pupils): £8 per pupil
