What says..

Parents see the school as occupying the middle ground - a relatively unselective place where pupils can be themselves. If you like the approach, great, but accept that it won’t be for everyone. ‘School is very honest that it’s for some children and not others,’ says parent. ‘Encourages every pupil to do something, whether they’re good at it or not,’ says a parent. Chamber choir much praised – singing is ‘amazing,’ says parent (an understatement, if final prep...

Special Education Needs

As a non-selective school for 4+ entry, we have a few children who prove to be dyslexic or dyspraxic. Should this be suspected, we request that the child has a full educational assessment with an educational psychologist. If necessary, we can then provide some 1 to 1 support, no more than two half hour lessons per week, for which a charge is made. This programme is supervised by our SENCO together with our part-time dyslexia specialists. We also have the services of a paediatric physiotherapist who spends one day a week in school to help children who are known to have dyspraxic type difficulties. We are an academic school and prefer, where possible, to limit the number of special needs children in any one year. 09-09
