Your first day in school

When you arrive at school we give you a warm Europa welcome at 9.30am. It is important you bring your passport or your identity card and your visa if you have one, so we can take a copy. We will then ask you:

  • to complete a short language awareness assessment. The results are in line with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. This will take about 45 minutes.
  • After this, we give you a short induction concerning what you can expect and what we expect of you, the social programme options and what you can buy at the school. We will then ask if you have any questions.
