At King’s Ely Junior International, we offer Year 7 and 8 students a fully immersive programme with the opportunity to experience the vibrant environment of a UK boarding school while developing knowledge of English, making new friends, and embracing a wide range of exciting experiences.

Studying alongside native speaker classmates whilst fully supported by English as a Second or Other Language (ESOL), teaching professionals give the students the support they need to develop and thrive in a caring and inclusive school community.

The Junior International programme offers a fully integrated experience in King’s Ely Junior. As well as bespoke ESOL classes, students also benefit from in-lesson subject support. In addition, a dedicated mentor looks out for each student’s pastoral needs and wellbeing throughout the year, which helps them feel settled from their very first day. Students will participate in several competitions throughout the year and will also share their language and culture through a variety of events.

Students who follow the programme are able to take part in the full range of opportunities available to all King’s Ely Junior students, with the potential to join the full mainstream curriculum at King’s Ely Senior in Year 9.
