Individualising the Student Experience policy

Individualising the Student Experience policy


We aim to provide an individual learning experience for each student who studies at WSE. We provide a modern, multi-cultural learning environment that is welcoming to all students. It is crucial that we gather and act upon feedback from students in order to ensure that we are offering the best service possible.

Students who have chosen to stay in our homestay accommodation receive information personally from the host family they will be staying with. It is the job of the accommodation manager to carefully select homestay families to suit the profile of each student.

During the course each student’s needs and interests are taken into consideration in careful planning, attention and monitoring from the teachers. On day one each student completes a written needs analysis form as part of their day one test. Teachers use this to help plan their course. Each student has regular tutorials with their teacher to discuss their study plans and goals and also to discuss their overall learning experience and welfare while at WSE. Tutorials are recorded on ewimbledon to allow future teachers to monitor ongoing individual student progress.

It is school policy for teachers to incorporate and integrate outside English experiences into their teaching such as visits to relevant places of interest. The school also aims to provide information on how to benefit from the community such as being involved in the local volunteer centre and organising university visits. We also encourage our students to get involved in charity events which we run periodically throughout the year.

Our social programme aims to address a large variety of interests, and students are regularly asked for feedback and suggestions on social programme activities. Members of the teaching staff are involved in running social activities such as WSE Has Talent, sports activities, international evenings etc. Students are actively encouraged to get involved in such activities.

In everything we do at WSE we aim to provide a beneficial and enjoyable all round learning experience as well as offer an insight into British life and culture.
