EAL is a pivotal part of our curriculum at The International School. At d’Overbroeck’s, we appreciate that the purpose of EAL is not only to prepare students to take an English language qualification; rather it also plays a crucial role in supporting students in all their mainstream subjects across the school when English is not their mother tongue.
All international students for whom English is not their first language have their English language level assessed prior to being offered a place. The school uses the Password tests to aid admission. All students are also tested on arrival using appropriate testing materials for their entry point. This test data is then used to inform setting. In the International School the EAL support is integrated into the 9i-11i curriculum.
The International School provides the perfect introduction to British education, offering unparalleled choice, the highest standards, and exceptional English language support.The International School
