A number of the pupils at Leweston come to us from overseas and whilst they are fully integrated into school life learning and socialising in English, they may opt for extra tuition in the English language, following a course that includes an introduction to British life, customs and culture.

Leweston has over fifty years' experience of teaching EAL and the Department is staffed by experienced, specialist teachers who work with the pupils on the skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing at their level. Those pupils who wish to can be prepared for public examinations in EAL.
