Special Education Needs
The College offers a ‘whole school’ approach to support for learning, creating an active partnership that includes the child and parents, with teachers and other professionals, working in concert to provide educational support for the individual at stages throughout their school career. The College sets each child in context, building a ‘child centred’ view. Support for learning is available to all pupils, whether gifted or talented at academic or other pursuits. Achievement is not seen in academic terms alone but embraces learning for life beyond The College.
