What The Good Schools Guide saysIt has taken the new head a bit of time to get everyone on board, but now they are. He wants to make it the school that people move out of the south east for and we think he will do it. The environment and pupils can’t help but charm, and there is a sense of revving up to take on the national big names in independent education.

Special Education Needs
The school takes seriously the importance of catering for pupils who have identified special needs. There is a new Learning Skills department run by a trained expert assisted by another specialist. All pupils are screened on entry. The department works very closely with partoral staff and helps to monitor and interpret academic progress. Pupils are rarely withdrawn from lessons but receive extra help from trained staff in a variety of ways during lunchtimes or after school. The school also has a Special Needs Coordinator who is a member of the English staff and liaises with teaching staff. 09-09
