What the school says...

The Grammar School at Leeds is one of the UK's leading independent co-educational schools. It enjoys the heritage of both Leeds Grammar School and Leeds Girls' High School with a lineage traceable back to 1552 and a long history of academic excellence. It benefits from a magnificent site on the outskirts of the north of Leeds.

This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Special Education Needs

We are aware that sometimes able pupils may have special learning difficulties, notably those associated with Dyslexia and Dyspraxia. Our policy is to welcome such pupils. Experience shows these children make good progress in our structured and supportive environment. We undertake a screening programme for all new pupils to the school, to identify learning difficulties. This is conducted by our specialist dyslexia teacher who is also responsible for teaching those pupils who have been identified as having a special need. This teaching is in small groups or individually, usually on a weekly basis. Regular reports and feedback is given to parents and teachers to establish an integrated support strategy. This is part of the LGS curriculum provision and there is no extra cost to parents. In addition, any pupils who have already been identified as dyslexic before entering GSAL are assessed by our specialist teacher and then offered extra support lessons where appropriate. Please direct any queries to our Learning Needs Co-ordinator, who will be happy to discuss related matters with you.
