Girls can join Knighton for as little as half a term but a year’s stay is typical. Learning English at this earlier stage helps children gain excellent English almost automatically, while Knighton’s famed pastoral care means this place quickly becomes a home from home. It is not unusual for girls to persuade their parents of the merits of a second year at Knighton.
We limit our EAL intake to ensure the best experience for both international and home-grown pupils. International students integrate fully into the life of the school while greatly enriching life for us all — in the holidays English girls often visit their Spanish, French or Italian friends. International students can be supported in their English studies by specialist EAL teachers either individually or in small groups.
