What the Good Schools Guide says...

A top-flight, state, co-ed grammar school that competes well, but not quite on an even footing, with independent rivals.

Special Education Needs

Every member of staff takes responsibility for the identification of pupils with Special Needs. Subject Staff identify individuals at both ends of the scale. Where Learning Support is needed pupils are referred to the school's Learning Support specialist where appropriate targets and strategies are then put into place. If difficulties are more specific then appropriate outside agencies are brought in. These might include Dyslexia screening, Hearing and Visual Impairment teams, and Inclusion and access agencies. Exceptionally able pupils are placed on the Able and Talented Register by Departments and Activity staff, from where they are included in the school's Able and Talented programme.
