Within the school there is a large, vibrant and well-resourced Learning Support Department which is staffed by teachers qualified and experienced in working with pupils with a wide variety of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).
The department is integral to the life of the school, working alongside any pupil with SEND as well as closely liaising with parents, school staff and external agencies in order to meet the individual needs of each child.
We offer an excellent programme of assessment from basic screening of all pupils to ensure early identification of need, to specialist teacher assessment, exam access arrangements and psychological assessment from a visiting professional.
The majority of Learning Support lessons are taught one to one, using structured, cumulative, multi-sensory teaching methods and clear, achievable targets.
English as an Additional Language lessons are available to support any pupil for whom English is not their first language.
Learning Support lessons are charged as an extra. Details can be found on the Fees section of the website.
