Special Education Needs
Tormead is academically selective and its students do very well in public examinations, but the school is particularly proud of the achievements of its dyslexic students, many of whom achieve high examination honours - two such former students recently obtained Oxbridge firsts. Dyslexic students in both Junior Department and senior school are taught in mainstream timetabled lessons, but are also supported by a team of specialist SEN teachers who meet them for weekly sessions. There is some flexibility in offering tailored programmes for students with other special needs such as moderate auditory or visual impairment, diabetes, epilepsy and cystic fibrosis.
