Additional English at Rooks Heath

The aim of the Additional English department is to help students, for whom English is an Additional Language, in the acquisition of the English Language, by providing stimulating courses involving effective teaching strategies. The groups consist of a wide range of learners, from newly arrived students coming from abroad, who are in the early stage of English acquisition, to more advanced learners of English, who are likely to be bilingual or multilingual. 

We provide a supportive learning environment, which encourages all the students to participate in active and engaging tasks. Termly, we set and review EAL targets based on students’ language acquisition and progress, in terms of the National Curriculum. We provide interactive teaching and learning strategies to enhance opportunities for speaking, listening and collaboration.

The Subject Curriculum 

We are proud to say that we are delivering an engaging course designed to encourage further development of students’ skills in English. Our tests and tasks are based on a range of real life situations enabling students to acquire vital language skills for everyday life.
