Bilingual Learners

Avonbourne is proud to have many students whose first language is not English. Those girls who need extra help and support in developing their command of English are given special lessons with the Trust's EAL teachers in the World Language Centre.

Students involved have the opportunity of taking a level 2 exam in English for speakers of other languages. These examinations help students gain access to a range of post 16 courses in the same way as GCSE examinations do.

Parents who wish to develop their own English can attend “English for Families” sessions with their daughters after school between 4pm and 5.30pm on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Boys from Harewood College, and their families, are also welcome at these sessions.
