- EFL with GCSE Modules
English Language (EFL) with GCSE ModulesOn this programme students study English language alongside some GCSE modules, again, maths and general science are compulsory. Depending on a student’s level of English, additional subjects can be selected and these include business studies, geography and art.The course is ideal for students aged sixteen and below who want to combine their language learning with academic studies.The course starts in September and, for the first six weeks, all GEFL students follow the same syllabus before being divided into ability groups.
At half-term, following a number of English language and academic subject assessments, the students are streamed based on their language ability.Throughout the year, students may be moved from the lower to the higher level. This, of course, depends on the individual’s progress.Those with stronger English skills will take some Foundation GCSE exams, whilst those with weaker English will require a timetable providing more language development.Those in the lower group will prepare for the Cambridge Key English Test (KET), whilst the higher level group will take the Preliminary English Test (PET). Students who work hard and pass the PET exam will have the chance to progress to either the GCSE one-year course or GCSE with EFL.From this example you will see the student is studying 6 subjects, but also included in their weekly timetable is PSHEE, recreational activities, ICT, enrichment activity, a PersonalTutor session and supervised study hall sessions. We ensure the students have a full and varied timetable that will allow them not only to achieve academically, but also to develop as individuals.
- Academic Preparation Programme
Academic Preparation Programme: A Level/FoundationThis course is designed for international students who are over sixteen years old. It is for students whose level of English is not ready for them to immediately progress onto A Levels or the University Foundation Programme.This programme is designed to raise the students’ level of English to that needed for academic success.
This course has flexible start dates: usually, the beginning of September or January terms.Students on the one-year option also have the opportunity to take a Cambridge PET exam, and those who achieve a merit award are able to progress to A Level or Foundation studies.
The course consists of language improvement plus academic study, which includes mathematics, an introduction to AS economics, practical skills in science and the language of science or portfolio art and design.
- High School Experience
High School ExperienceThis programme is designed for international students who wish to join Bosworth for one or two terms rather than the whole year. Students will integrate into one of our full-time programmes and the choice of programme will depend on age of the student, level of English and academic history.
Once we have the individual information about the student, we will make sure we place them on a programme that is suitable to meet their objectives.Where students require significant English tuition, they will largely be in lessons with other international students but will mix with British students in the sports and enrichment activities.
Accommodation is in a boarding house, pending availability, and we can also offer a host family option.
