Information for overseas students
Overseas children have been coming to Moor Park for a number of years and have all enjoyed the experience. We only take a small number from any one country (maximum of 6) for a full year.
We find it beneficial to have more than one child from the same country as they provide support for each other, particularly in the early stages.
Children should have a reasonable level of English before coming to Moor Park.
We usually use Heathrow airport and transport can be arranged to and from the airport. The cost will be dependent on numbers and whether a minibus or taxi is used. It will be divided between the children and will be billed separately.
Pupils should arrive the day before term starts and arrange to leave school on the last day of term. If this is not possible, then they should make arrangements for the day before that.
We have 'leave weekends' (Exeat) approximately every 3 weeks when we try to arrange for our overseas students stay with English families who have children in the school. At half term we strongly recommend that children return home to their families. They need this contact with their parents and it can be difficult to find somewhere for them to stay for a whole week.
For children who are coming for the whole year, it is important that we have the name of someone to contact in England in case of emergency.
Fees include up to 3 hours specific tuition per week in English as a Foreign Language (EFL). It may be possible to arrange more lessons but this will be at an extra cost and will depend on the rest of the timetable.
Overseas children who come for the whole year, and whose English is of an appropriate standard, are encouraged to take the Cambridge Preliminary Certificate in English and EFL lessons are structured for this.
We follow the English National curriculum but like to think that we aspire to teach beyond its limitations.. We also offer subjects outside the National Curriculum eg Latin and Personal & Social Health Education.
