Free English Lessons at Aylward School


In 2018 we asked parents and carers to take part in a survey in order to establish areas that the school could assist families in improving parental engagement in learning. The survey results showed that adult learning was a priority for parents. 


Stanmore College ran a free course at Aylward from September 2018; English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL).


The course location was later moved to Stanmore College - please enquire direct for the latest information.
