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.

Faced with the difficult choice of our daughters remaining at a perfectly good state school in the Isle of Man, we chose to send them to King William’s College to study the International Baccalaureate. The outcome in both cases was a resounding endorsement of our decision, since King William’s College operates and delivers at a different level.
