What the Good Schools Guide says...

An extremely diverse community, both culturally and socially. As one member of staff dryly observed, at the end of the school day equal numbers turn either right into the Telegraph Hill conservation area, where a five-bedroom house might go for £1.3m, or left towards New Cross and some of the worst social deprivation in London...

Special Education Needs

The College provides for students with a variety of SENs. We use in class support from a team of experienced and well trained teaching assistants and special needs assistants to meet their needs. Students with statements of SEN receive the support required by their statements. These include medical, physical, sensory and learning needs, such as dyslexia and dyspraxia. Both sites are now almost entirely accessible to students using wheelchairs as there are lifts in most of the buildings. Around one in seven pupils are on the SEN Profile, about half supported in class and around a quarter have additional support with specialist teachers or learning mentors. About 60 pupils with statements have a range of physical or other needs including ASD in which the school has a minor specialism – and they are supported by the inclusion team who include a college welfare office, counsellors and mentors, dyslexia team, behaviour and emotional needs support team, speech & language therapist, EAL and a team of teaching assistants who work alongside the (SENCO – Special Educational Needs Coordinator & Inclusion manager). Although it is a Victorian building, the school continues to develop facilities making it more accessible for pupils with disabilities. There are three lifts to assist wheelchair users. The Gifted and Talented team supports the very able with a wide range of activities. 10-09
