All pupils are assessed before they arrive and are re-tested upon arrival.

Getting to know pupils once they have arrived helps us to identify the most appropriate programme for them. Pupils of any age who, on re-testing after arrival, have results significantly different to and lower than those scored on their entrance test may need an individualised programme of intensive English with one-to-one tuition. In this case, the school reserves the right to determine the level of support that is required. This can normally be arranged with an additional individually charged programme, paid in advance of lessons. If a pupil has a level lower than we can accommodate in our Intensive English course, then the offer of a place will be withdrawn.
