Programme of Intensive English

Programme of Intensive English



The Programme of Intensive English (PIE) is a curriculum especially designed to cater to students who need to boost their English skills upon arrival at the school. The programme aims to allow students to acquire the academic English skills necessary to integrate as quickly as possible into mainstream lessons. 


Upon entering the programme, students join a small group of learners and receive close guidance and language coaching from a specialist teacher. The timetable is especially designed so that PIE students can attend subjects which have the least need for fluency in English, such as Physical & Health Education (sports), and Visual Arts. This ensures that students in the Programme of Intensive English can still mix and make friends with the other students. 


The content of the lessons ties to the topics that students will study upon integrating back into normal classes. Students will be able to integrate into lessons once they have obtained the required level of functioning English which corresponds to level B1 on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
