Special Education Needs
We have limited facilities for pupils with physical disabilities owing to the nature of the building and the extensive campus. However, we provide good curricular support for pupils with additional support needs such as dyslexia or dyspraxia and we currently have several pupils with communication disorders on the autistic spectrum. Our four special needs auxiliaries provide strong support for individual pupils according to their particular needs. We have also had excellent success with our bilingual pupils, many of whom gain qualifications in their first language.
