At Wentworth College our junior classes are around 22 students and in the senior school they seldom exceed 15 students with usually less than 10 students in A2 classes. These small class numbers allow us to closely support individuals to make sure they reach their full potential.
  • ESOL -  Our ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) programme continues to successfully support International Students in their English language development. Most of our International Students attend an ESOL lesson every day, in addition to their English lessons and for the remainder of their timetable, they are in mainstream classes doing their subject options. Students arriving with little English soon become proficient, and the extra support and attention in these lessons enable better integration in to mainstream classes.
