What the school says...

Midhurst Rother College is situated in the market town of Midhurst at the heart of West Sussex. The College has a very large rural catchment area of 400 square miles, drawing students from a wide and varied landscape, made up of small villages, hamlets and two market towns, all on the door step of the South Downs.

Midhurst has a rich tradition and history of education dating back to 1672. Midhurst Rother College represents an exciting new chapter in this history.

It is our ambition to create a vibrant, happy and successful College which delivers the very highest standards of education, nurtures each students talents and skills and plays a central role in meeting the needs of our community.

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.

This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

Years you were there

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.

Special Education Needs

Midhurst Grammar School is a mainstream school serving all of the students within its catchment area. It has an inclusive policy and welcomes all students. The SENCO manages a team of 2 SEN teachers and 7 Teaching Assistants. We provide for a range of special educational needs including students with specific learning difficulties, emotional, behavioural and social needs, sensory impairment and more general learning difficulties. The provision is worked out to suit the individual needs of each student but might include in-class support from a teaching assistant, small group learning support with a SEN teacher, speech and language support from a teacher or the senior teaching assistant. Although we have experience of working with students with autistic spectrum disorder (Aspergers syndrome) these cases have been mild to moderate. We do not have a special needs unit, students follow the national curriculum in mainstream classes, with support to differentiate the curriculum as appropriate. We support a number of students with medical conditions. Two of the teaching assistants are trained to provide physiotherapy for students with Cystic Fibrosis; support staff and teachers are trained to deal with epileptic seizures.
