Work with Love


Welcome to our EAL Department


Direct support for students with EAL is co-ordinated by the EAL Support Teacher, with support from our Special Educational Needs Coordinator, a visiting teacher from the language and achievement service and a Teaching Assistant who acts as a Key Worker for EAL students.


  • Potential barriers to learning are overcome by individual assessment, advice to teachers and teaching assistants and support for the student in terms of self-esteem and sociability.
  • Students with EAL are encouraged to take GCSE’s in their first languages and share their talents and cultural experiences with their peers.
  • Older EAL students act as buddies for younger EAL students. We encourage students who have English as an additional language to train as Peer Mentors or Young Interpreters.

Our Values



Prayer & Faith




We must ‘Go and do likewise’, to serve the needs of others.

We are ‘One Body in Christ’, inclusive and welcoming to all.

We are called to ‘be constant in prayer’ to discern God’s love. Students are invited to faith, participating in regular acts of workshop as forms, classes, year groups, and a school.

Students are expected to be hopeful, showing respect to themselves, their peers, teachers and the environment.

Students are expected to be charitable through acts of service in school and the wider community.

Students are expected to maintain a scholarly attitude in all lessons and work to the best of their ability and engage where they can in extra-curricular activities.
