All-through school (for example 3-18 years). - An all-through school covers junior and senior education. It may start at 3 or 4, or later, and continue through to 16 or 18. Some all-through schools set exams at 11 or 13 that pupils must pass to move on.
Special Education Needs
We provide support for dyslexics between the ages of 5-18. Having an on-site dyslexia tutor saves our pupils having to attend sessions out of school hours. Sessions are sympathetically organised so that pupils are not disadvantaged in curriculum subjects they may be good at. All the sessions in the senior department coincide with English teaching. We have teaching assistants who may help within the classroom or who may offer out of class support. Our teaching assistants are highly qualified which is a definite strength. Our pupils are generally of average or above average intelligence and staff endeavour to allow them to fulfil their potential. Our expertise includes dyspraxia and visual impairment.
