English as an Additional Language

There are many bilingual students who speak a range of different languages in Tynecastle. If your child’s home language is not English, in-class support is available from visiting EAL teachers and bilingual support assistants (BSA), who also communicate with staff and parents on educational and cultural matters. This is to ensure your child develops their full potential across all areas of the curriculum. English beginner classes are available for early stage learners of English and ESOL classes from S3 upwards at Int1, 2 & Higher levels after school.
