1) Cambridge Board ESOL qualifications

At this stage of your child’s education we offer an ESOL qualification from the Cambridge Board. We are registered as a University of Cambridge International Examinations centre and are happy to take pupils to other examination centres as required.

a) Preliminary English Test (PET) – lower intermediate

PET is for pupils who can use everyday written and spoken English at an intermediate level. It covers the key language skills – reading, writing, listening and speaking. Preparing for the exam is a popular way to develop and improve your child’s language skills because it provides practical language practice in a variety of everyday work, study and leisure situations.

Studying for the PET offers your child a chance to find out their strengths and weaknesses in using English, and gives them a pathway to higher qualifications such as the First Certificate in English (available to study in the Senior School).
