Special Education Needs
We have a small number of students with Special Educational Needs including dyslexia, dyspraxia and those who have special needs because English is not their first language. We have a very able Learning Support Co-ordinator (SENCO). Students with special needs often take only one modern language and are withdrawn from the second for one to one or small group support. 09-09
