St George’s has a very strong EAL department which is there to help students access the school curriculum. All our EAL lessons are conducted on a one-to-one basis, although our EAL teachers work closely with academic subject teachers and form tutors to ensure that EAL students are receiving the specific language support they need. We also help our students prepare for any external examinations such as IELTS, the English proficiency test accepted by British Universities, and provide the internationally recognised Cambridge exams should the girls wish to take this (PET, FCE and CAE) with the final exam taken at a certified test centre. We aim that all our girls will achieve IELTS 7.5 by the time they leave St George’s ready for university entrance.
