Special Education Needs
Merchant Taylors' is one of the top dozen academic boys' schools in the UK. All boys participate fully in all aspects of the curriculum and the wider life of the school. Every boy’s strengths are valued and his areas for development supported. The school makes provision for a large number of gifted and talented pupils and has a learning support department staffed by specialist teachers. All boys are screened on entry to the school and progress is tracked. Where it becomes apparent that further investigation or intervention is needed, this is arranged by the learning support department in consultation with the boy’s parents and teachers. Learning support operates as a whole school model, with specialist support available to all teachers to ensure boys’ learning needs are met.
