English Language (EFL) with basic GCSE
On this programme students study English Language alongside some basic GCSE content. It is aimed at students aged between 14-16 years with lower levels of English who require a year of English before progression to the Academic Preparation Programme. The course starts in September and the timetable consists of just over a third of EFL lessons alongside Maths, Biology, Chemsitry, Physics, Business Studies and Geography. Alongside, Art club, Citizenship, Computer Science, PHSEE and Physical Education. For more details see EFL with basic GCSE.
Academic Preparation Programme
This course is designed for international students whose level of English is not ready for them to progress immediately onto A-levels or the University Foundation Programme. This course has flexible start dates: usually, the beginning of September or January terms. Students work towards IGCSE English as a second language or IELTS exams and will need to achieve a grade C or 5.5 for progression.
Alongside this language improvement, we offer GCSE Maths and then students opt to study 3 from the following IGCSE subject list: Biology, Business Studies, Chemistry, Combined Science, Geography or Physics. Students must pick at least one science option within their three elective choices. Plus all the compulsory subjects listed under EFL with basic GCSE if students are under the age of 16.
High School Experience
This 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 the age of the student, their level of English and their 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.
We offer a General English programme in the summer – it is a six week course focused on English Language. It prepares students for continuing education in the UK or aims to help the student develop existing skills. The course combines classroom learning with educational trips and leisure activities. Plus students have the option for four afternoons a week to combine their English lessons with Art, Tennis, Go Karting or Film Making. The programme is run by a full-time Course Director and our permanent EFL staff. For more details about our Summer School.
