What the Good Schools Guide says...

If the school feels you're 'a Frewen child' and takes you, they'll give you of their best. Children almost inevitably arrive at the school with poor self-esteem and a lack of confidence that it works unceasingly to improve. They do not take those whose primary problem is...

What the school says...

An independent specialist school for children with Specific Learning Difficulties (dyslexia, dyspraxia and dyscalculia), and other related difficulties such as speech and language and sensory integration problems. A new Sixth Form was launched in 2014 in partnership with two other Colleges, and external applicants are welcome. Approximately two thirds of the pupils have statements of SEN (mainly LA funded), and a third are private. We treat each child separately and create individual education programmes that enable them to celebrate and build their strengths while learning to deal with their difficulties. Art, C&DT and ICT are particular strengths.

Special Education Needs

The central aim of the school is to help every child realise and achieve their full potential, whether great or modest. Most pupils will have encountered difficulties during their previous educational experiences and many will be far more aware of their limitations than their capabilities. At Frewen, each pupil is seen as an individual with unique talents and abilities. By working to emphasise and develop their strengths, we create the confidence to address their limitations in a positive and creative environment. We offer the full National Curriculum, teaching in small groups (average class size 5.5) through specialist staff, supported by our own full time Speech and Language and Occupational Therapists. All new pupils undergo thorough assessment and educational and therapy programmes are tailored to their individual needs. While placing great emphasis on Literacy and Numeracy, we have particular strengths in IT, Art and Design, and Music. We have a wide range of excellent facilities, including extensive playing fields, gardens, and access to parkland extending to over 100 acres. Whilst our principal area of specialisation is Specific Learning Difficulties, we also accept a number of children with Asperger's Syndrome if we feel they will fit in well. Above all Frewen College is a community in which respect for the individual is at the core of our philosophy. Each member of the community has an important role to play and is expected to understand their responsibilities and help others whenever possible.
