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.

Our son has been at King William’s College for two years and has settled in very well with the full support of the boarding staff and teachers, who have demonstrated great kindness and caring. The highly disciplined, but dynamic education system has helped our 15 year old son to adapt well and his confidence has noticeably improved in a short space of time. What's especially pleasing is that not only does the College have an excellent calibre of teaching staff and a strong academic curriculum, but we have been surprised and delighted to discover their excellent music achievements! With such great experience, our second son will also join KWC starting at Lower 5, to have a well rounded education. We cannot be more pleased with our decision to send our sons here all the way from Hong Kong!
