What the school says...
Egerton Rothesay is a non-selective school in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, with a mainstream curriculum catering for children from 5-19 years. We provide specialist input for pupils who need some form of additional support, perhaps because of a specific educational need such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, speech and language issues or sectors of the autistic spectrum or for a more general problem with learning.
We believe that learning should be focused on the individual and should be about preparing each child for life after school not just exams. As part of this we opened a Sixth Form in 2012 to provide further time for qualification in a supportive environment before college or work, with a wide range of vocational and academic courses.
ERS delivers a broad education and we provide pupils with a range of individually tailored strategies to support their learning needs and development. This means a unique and relevant education for each student. Our education promotes life skills and social skills to help make the next transition whether to our sixth form or to college and prepare pupils for everyday life. Courses offered include mainstream GCSE and BTEC courses as well as vocational or career qualifications. With a supportive environment and one-to-one help available, our pupils exceed their expectations and move on to their next choice of education or work, including many who go on to colleges and university. ...Read more
