ATLAS Centre – Access Teaching, Learning and Support.
In our Atlas lessons, we aim to support students from different countries to achieve their potential in English and in school life. We provide them with the sound understanding of the English language components (vocabulary, grammar, punctuation etc.) to help them to access their subjects and apply this to their social and academic world.
Some examples of the countries that our students have come from are Pakistan, Sweden, Romania, Finland, and Hong Kong. We have over 25 languages and dialects spoken at Holy Trinity.
Our students are able to take exams in their native languages to help them achieve an extra GCSE qualification. Our 2019 exam results have been incredible:
Arabic – 1 grade 9, 1 grade 8
Bengali – 2 grade 9, 1 grade 8
Italian – 4 grade 9
Portuguese – 2 B
Urdu – 1 grade 8, 3 grade 6, 1 grade 4
