International Baccalaureate: diploma - the diploma is the familiar A-level equivalent.



Please note: Independent schools frequently offer IGCSEs or other qualifications alongside or as an alternative to GCSE. The DfE does not record performance data for these exams so independent school GCSE data is frequently misleading; parents should check the results with the schools.

Special Education Needs

The School caters for those with a special need for boarding, promoting both cultural and intellectual development in our pupils, together with the achievement of the best academic qualifications within each pupil’s capabilities. To this end the School seeks to identify and to provide support for the particular or special needs of its pupils by: · screening new pupils regularly in order to identify those with particular needs · employing trained learning support teachers who are able to provide individual or small group support for pupils with particular needs · keeping a regularly updated register of pupils who receive such help so that those who teach them are informed of their needs · cooperating with specialist advisory teachers and allowing them access to classrooms in company with the pupil · being flexible over the provision of co-curricular sport and activities, as well as the curriculum itself, in order to accommodate individual pupil’s needs.
