We provide a holistic approach to student wellbeing so they can have a rich and fulfilling experience while studying at KTJ. Student Support Services provide the following to advise and assist all students:
English as an Additional Language (EAL) Support
Language support is provided for students who:
- Do not speak English as a first language;
- Need extra English language support to participate actively and confidently in and out of class.
- Support is provided through taught group classes, in-class subject support and, when necessary, one-to-one classes
EAL in the Sixth Form
KTJ offers English Language preparatory courses for two external examinations, the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) and the reading and writing sections of the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT). The IELTS is an English Language qualification that students use when they apply for a place at Universities while the SAT is an aptitude test that is used for university admissions throughout the United States. The IELTS Preparation and the SAT Preparation Courses focus on helping students master the relevant language and test taking skills required for each assessment.
KTJ has high aspirations for all students and the Learning Support team provides a range of strategies and interventions for students with additional needs to enable them to access the curriculum and achieve their best. Support is planned collaboratively with key staff across the school in order to achieve best outcomes.
At KTJ the mental health and emotional welfare of our students are a priority for us. We have professionally-trained counsellors on campus to assist our students. Students are encouraged to make use of this service as no worry is too small or insignificant to be shared.
