English for Speakers of Other Languages

The aim of the English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) Department is to support pupils for whom English is not the first language.

Such support focuses primarily on enhancing pupils' vocabulary, grammar and expression, to facilitate the smooth transition of ESOL pupils into academic studies. It also aims to build pupils' confidence in using the English language, so that students can participate in all aspects of College life.

The ESOL Department offers several courses to help our pupils improve their English, including Cambridge IGCSE course (U5), IELTS course (L6 and U6) and Individual or small group lessons to target specific skills.

I loved King William’s College from the start. I made up my mind within an hour of our time there that I wanted my son to attend. You have to come to College to understand what makes it stand out from the rest. It is a place of genuinely caring and friendly people. Another aspect of College we love is its vast international community. Our son has made some great friends and as a result has come to appreciate and respect other cultures and traditions. Our son loves College. He loves the independence to make choices, the easy access he has to his tutors, the opportunity to make his own mistakes and learn from them, but most of all, he loves the fact that expert assistance is always a breath away.
