Learning at BVGA


English as an Additional Language - Intent

Empower our students with the most powerful tool in the world - language. Take students from around the world, some who come with no literacy in their mother tongue and some who are highly literate in their first language and turn them in to confident speakers and writers of English. Break down barriers to learning by equipping our students with the appropriate English language skills so that they can access other subjects as rapidly as possible. Turn our students who are often withdrawn and lacking in confidence in to self-confident, resilient and independent young women who can take a full part in school life, not just academic and cultural but democratic too. Our students will leave BVGA as confident citizens of Britain and the world.
