Special Education Needs
As a selective independent school we tend to primarily provide support for students who have English as a second language and for those who demonstrate dyslexic tendendencies. As such, we have in-house peripatetic specialists available if students opt to have support lessons. These sessions (either on an individual or small group basis) tend to be timetabled outside of lesson times to cause minimum disruption to the students academic day. Nov 09
