Special Education Needs

Brockhurst and Marlston House Schools educate children of mixed ability but all are "mainstream" pupils. We have three part time SEN teachers (Dip.SpLD, AMBDA qualified) who assess and work in conjunction with class teachers and the English department to support pupils who are dyslexic or who have learning difficulties. Individual programmes of work are planned according to need and progress is monitored on a weekly basis. Pupils are taught on a one to one basis for two sessions per week depending upon individual need. Senior pupils often benefit from study skills to help basic organisational skills and revision towards Common Entrance and Scholarship work.
