Special Education Needs

We are here to provide extra help and support to students to enable them to achieve full access to the curriculum and realise their full potential, irrespective of their background or ability. We understand that pupils can need support for many reasons, and are aware that some may need a lot of support all the way through school, whilst others will only need a small amount for a short time. Our teaching styles and individual programmes of study reflect the need for flexibility and enable us to cater for the diverse range of both English language and learning needs of our pupils.
