Description The New Eccles Hall School

  • Location: Norwich, Norfolk, UK
  • Founded: in 1945
  • Age of students: 7-18 years
  • Total number of students: 200 people (60 at the hostel)
  • Type of accommodation: residence (full or partial board from the age of 8)
  • Type of training: joint (mixed).

Private School-Boarding School The New Eccles Hall School (New Eccles School, NEHS) was founded in 1945 and is located in Norfolk County (eastern part of England), occupying a picturesque territory of more than 30 acres. There are a few students studying here - about 200 people - which allows keeping a friendly, warm atmosphere at all educational levels (the school is open to students of 7-18 years old and offers a full British educational cycle).

This is a unique school, best suited for teaching children with learning or development difficulties - this fact was noted by an independent ISI inspection, recommending the New Eccles Hall School for students with disabilities or psychophysical development. Many applicants on admission show a lag from the general program for 2-3 years, their ability to be assessed as below the national average - but in the future carefully balanced programs allow them to equalize and succeed. Graduates continue their studies in British universities on a par with other students from classical boarding schools. More than half of the students successfully pass GCSE exams, 10% of students pass the hardest A-level exams, and some students even pass examinations ahead of time, show excellent results in national olympiads (for example, Mathematics Challenge).

The main factor of success is the creation of a really friendly, comfortable, productive atmosphere in which children feel safe, feel the care and participation of teachers and school personnel. All children sympathize and sympathize with each other, together they experience victories and defeats, develop spiritually and emotionally. The school strives to make pupils with initially low level of abilities and development backlog become full-fledged, self-confident, diversified members of society, prepare students for life in a modern multicultural environment.

Only 8.5% of students are foreigners, British subjects are the overwhelming majority. About a third of students live in a school on a full or partial (weekly) boarding school. The ratio of teachers to students is 1: 3 - 1: 4.

The New Eccles Hall School's curriculum meets the requirements of the British national standard, but is skillfully tailored to the needs and characteristics of local students, can be simplified or complicated depending on each student. Each pupil, in fact, is offered a unique, individual educational and extracurricular program, taking into account his personal pace and level of abilities, development. The course includes all the main, key subjects of the British school curriculum:

  • Art and design
  • Information and communication technologies (ICT)
  • English as a second language (for foreigners)
  • Design and technology
  • mathematics
  • Applied creativity
  • natural Sciences
  • Modern foreign languages ​​(especially popular French)
  • history
  • physical Culture and sport
  • geography
  • music
  • Humanities, social sciences
  • Dramatic and theatrical art.

The New Eccles Hall School's campus includes the International Training Center, which makes it much easier for foreign children to adapt to a new language and academic environment. English language courses are conducted as a foreign language (EAL) with full immersion in the language environment: it is possible to vary the pace and intensity of classes, the size of the training group and the number of individual consultations in order to achieve maximum efficiency and progress.

Both short-term courses and long-term study programs work at the school. It is also possible to complete a full-fledged language course, prepare for the IELTS exam (it will be required for admission to the university), Cambridge exams - Cambridge ESOL (KET, PET, FCE, CAE). Foreigners can take a "trial trimester" and undergo an integration program: he will study and live with the rest of the students, attending English classes for foreigners. So the student and his parents will be able to understand whether he is ready for training in the English boarding school, whether their level of teaching suits, whether there are enough linguistic and academic abilities for full-fledged education. The minimum duration of the integration course is 4 weeks - in consultation with the administration and director of The New Eccles Hall School, it can be extended for almost any period.

A comprehensive system of work with students, adopted at NEHS is a combination of academic studies (in class, mini-groups and individually) and enrichment programs: excursions, lectures, master classes, circles and sections, sports classes, communication with teachers and curators.

Three times a week, general school meetings and meetings with the class teacher are held. Each "newcomer" receives a personal tutor, who can be reassigned and selected independently after the end of the first trimester of his studies (the replacement tutor can be held every year). Also, all newcomers are supported and directed by older students, who help them learn and adapt during the first few weeks.

The school has its own department of vocational guidance. He tells students about modern professions, focusing on the most promising and popular, helps determine personal interests and inclinations, choose a university and faculty. Parents receive a full report on all the child's successes and achievements at least twice a year, plus a large parental meeting is held every year (but, if necessary, each parent can come to school at any convenient time - just inform the staff and the director). The additional (primary) report is received by the parents of each new student: he is sent already in the first trimester, after approximately 3 weeks from the beginning of the study. Every three weeks there is an intermediate certification and knowledge check: the results are laid out on the school site and in the online storehouse, where they can be viewed by any parent and teacher.

Individual Training Section (SEN - special educational needs)

College of Knowledge is a unique feature of the school. He works with students of any age and level of ability and helps to level the difficulties in learning and mastering the material. Thanks to such activities, children do not feel stupid, lagging behind, incomplete - they quickly catch up with peers in terms of knowledge and engage with them on an equal footing. On average, the Individual Education Section holds 4-5 lessons each week: 6 specialized highly skilled teachers are engaged with children, each of whom is responsible for their industry and knowledge. All teachers regularly undergo further training and improve their knowledge, methods of working with children, share practical experience with their colleagues.

For example, the western educational method of Dr. Feuerstein is often used: it is a teaching closely connected with art and creativity. In the process of learning, students get better perception of plans, schemes, forms, 2D and 3D figures; Increases the skill of quantitative thinking and general capabilities, counting skills.

The kinesiologist has been working in the school for many years: he brings in special exercises for each session to stimulate and integrate the right and left brain hemispheres, help improve the coordination of the look and movements of the hands, concentration, attention, accuracy and speed of reading. Actively used and modern electronic resources and specialized software: for example, students can learn to use the program for voice recognition, which helps them in their homework and projects. Help in the classes and qualified speech therapists, igroterapevty.

The Tardis, a special unit of the Individual Lessons Section

The Tardis office works with students who require more serious help in mastering the methods of numeracy and general literacy skills. In Tardis, selected students are engaged almost constantly, crossing with the main stream of students in art, music, sports and technology classes. Gradually, with the improvement and development of abilities (this process is purely individual, and for each pupil this period of time), children are transferred to the training for the rest of the stream, the basic traditional program.

Training in Tardis is conducted on an individual basis or in mini-groups: classes are gradually expanding to prepare students for training in a standard class with other students.
