Special Education Needs
The school has a well established and highly regarded Resourced Provision for pupils with physical disabilities. There are usually about a dozen wheelchair users at any one time and they are fully integrated into the life of the school.

The emphasis is on supporting pupils in mainstream classes, but there are some small withdrawal groups, particularly for literacy.
