On the 1st and 2nd of December Mrs Orchard accompanied five of our international pupils to York to sit the Cambridge ESOL First Certificate in English. The examination assesses pupils on their speaking, listening, reading and writing of English and is an arduous test taking 5 hours!

As a reward for their hard work they took time out to visit York Christmas Market and the National Railway Museum. The trip and the exams went very well, apart from the delay on the rail journey when a herd of sheep strayed onto the track.EAL-pupils-at-Melton-College-York-1[1]
