Native Level English Speaker (Ages 12-18)

Develop your language and academic skills and prepare for success in learning, life and work.


Preparing for success.

Our Native Level English Speaker programme is designed for young learners (12-17 years old) who speak English at home – as a first or second language.

Together we will support your child to strengthen their language skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking) as well as their academic capabilities, including research, delivering presentations, writing creative narratives, or preparing for exams.

This programme is also a perfect supplement to the needs of children who may usually be studying in French; broadening their capabilities and capacity for learning by immersing them in an English-medium learning environment.

We also aim to maximise students’ potential for exam success by preparing them with new tools and techniques to tackle a wide range of questions. Young learners can put these skills into practice by taking an internationnally-recognised Cambridge English exam to certify their English language achievement and qualification.

We all very happy to have enrolled to Bell school, our kids love it and progress at their own rhythm which is respected at Bell . The progress is significantly big for each of them individually and it is evident in the improvement of their communication and understanding of English.
Thank you all for the past almost 5 years at Bell – my son has always loved ‘English School’ – and for the education he has had at Bell throughout the years (and the homeworks you have always given us) and we are grateful to you all. You have contributed to our son’s development.
