Special Education Needs
As a selective girls' school we can cater for girls on the mild to moderate spectrum of specific learning difficulties. We have an experienced department which liaises closely with all teaching staff to ensure that the particular needs of girls are all provided for. Some girls receive one-to-one tuition while for others an open-door policy is sufficient. 09-09
