Special Education Needs
The Student Learning Department arranges support for girls who have learning difficulties. Support may be provided by the teacher alongside the student in class, or on a one-to-one basis outside the classroom. Similar kinds of support are available through the EAL Department for those students who are new to English. In Year 7, students who achieved a level 3 in English or Maths in their Key Stage 2 SATs are given intensive literacy and numeracy sessions throughout the year to help them catch up with their peers.
