A combination of written, spoken and comprehension. We will test their level of English to ensure that they are capable of understanding the lessons and that their move to study in Wingate will not be detrimental to their educational development. We also will check the child’s attitude and behaviour and ensure that they will contribute to a positive experience for everyone whilst they are at Wingate. Most students who fail the interview process are due to our staff believing that the child’s level of English would not allow them to follow lessons properly and would negatively impact their progress.

If this is the case, we now have an English Development Programme where students can study intensive English at Wingate, quickly learning the vocabulary necessary to understand the curriculum, and at the same time doing joint classes and activities where they can integrate into the school and get to know their future classmates. Once their English is good enough, and there is space available in their class, they will join the main school. Click here for more info.

We will do our best to give you a realistic expectation based on the current waiting list at that time

We have to ensure that your child is capable of following the lessons correctly and that studying at Wingate will not be detrimental to their educational development
