For pupils from overseas who require extra support in English, we offer a comprehensive EAL curriculum both at St Mary’s Hall and in the Lower Line College years, covering language development ahead of exam preparation.

We prepare students for the Cambridge KET, PET and/or FCE examinations, all regulated by the University of Cambridge ESOL department.

Every one of these certificates is recognised around the world by universities, employers, and government departments and, like a GCSE, is valid for life.
