Our pupils come from all over the globe
Our international students make tremendous progress in their studies and in their confidence.
We understand how daunting it can be to leave your family and come to another country to study, but our experienced boarding staff, School staff and senior management, collaborate to ensure that our international students quickly settle into life in the UK.
Just before the start of term in September, we offer a fun and interactive pre-sessional course which aims to introduce our international students to St Margaret's and for them to get to know one another.
Students can look forward to enjoying afternoon tea in the School’s orchard, visiting London and the local area. There is also an emphasis on familiarising them with the English language through EAL lessons - all this before term starts.
We offer a package of EAL support for our students all included in the fee. Our approach includes a high level of contact time, encouragement and pastoral support to ensure confidence and progress.
