The Learning Support Department provides a wide range of support services to students from Years 7 to 13. All students are screened early in Year 7 and individual assessments are carried out as required any time during Years 7-13. Spelling and Reading Comprehension Booster groups at Year 7, Learning Skills programmes across all years and smaller Study Skills groups, including a Sixth Form "On Track" study guidance service, meet the needs of many students with mild specific learning difficulties. Individual or small group tuition is offered to those who may need more intensive support. Specialist EAL tuition and adjusted programmes are available for students for whom English is an additional language and the School has a Korean mentor. Gifted and Talented students are identified and a range of programmes are in place to meet their needs. The School ethos is one of embracing a pupil's individuality, helping her to grow in self-confidence and self-worth and to achieve her potential. Those pupils with additional learning needs are no exception and are supported in a caring and practical way.
