A school in Britain with children from more than 50 different countries is set to become the first in the country to teach English as a foreign language.


City of Leeds School in Yorkshire will introduce English as a foreign language to each if its 350 pupils, the Daily Express reported.

Georgiana Sale, head teacher of the school, said that less than a quarter of its pupils had English as their first language and more than half of the children were new to the country within the past four years.

So it was decided to include pupils who have English as a first language in the programme because in many cases their level of formal English was not good to achieve good grades at GCSE, she said.

Chris McGovern, Chairman of the Campaign for Real Education said that whilst it was very important that non-English speakers were properly looked after, this should not be at the expense of those for whom English is their mother tongue.
