Special Education Needs
At Warwick we recognise that boys may be academically able but may need support because they have a specific learning difficulty. There are a few boys in the school who have conditions such as dyslexia, dyspraxia and Asperger's Syndrome. The school has an excellent Curriculum Support department, which is staffed by experienced, qualified, specialist teachers. Every attempt is made to consider the needs of the individual and to meet those needs, and many such boys enjoy considerable success. Subject teachers are offered guidance on how best to manage the needs of pupils with special educational needs. There is no system of in-class support, but in some cases extra provision is made, for example a dyslexic boy might have lessons to help him to develop literacy skills. There is an additional charge if extra provision is made.
