English as an Additional Language

Pupils who do not speak English at home are often described as pupils who speak English as an additional language, EAL. The number of EAL pupils in a student population varies from school to school.

Why does this affect your choice of school?

Parents are often concerned about how the number of EAL pupils at a school will impact on their child’s learning. Whether your child has English as their primary or additional language, the quality of the EAL department and the languages spoken by the student cohort can impact positively on your child’s school experience.
