English as an Additional Language (EAL)

Welcome from Caith Olnick

Hampton Court House is dedicated to providing individual and group tuition to those students who wish to improve their English language communication skills. We offer a complete programme of lessons geared to foreign students, designed to inform their written and spoken expression while simultaneously building pupils’ confidence and ability to use this information effectively in the classroom environment.

Children are taught by a specialist teacher in a creative and supportive environment and placed in groups according to age and level of ability. Lessons are delivered in a fun and interactive format using a variety of teaching techniques. Informal assessment takes place on an on-going basis and students sit an additional formal assessment once per term.

All classes are taught in pairs or small groups of 3 or 4 pupils (a maximum of 6 students per class). All materials (including books) are provided.

EAL lessons are charged at £20 each for a 40 minute session and are payable on a termly basis via the Bursar.

All language courses are taught by Caith Olnick, an EAL specialist tutor who joined HCH in January 2010. Since then Caith has successfully intertwined her twin passions: teaching English as an Additional Language while helping to ensure that all children flourish at Hampton Court House, no matter what individual challenges they may face.
