Special Education Needs

We have an excellent learning support department, staffed by one full-time member of staff and several part-time specialists. Teaching is normally on a one-to-one basis but there is some paired group work. Support may be given for gifted children, dyslexia, dyspraxia, extra help with literacy/reading, numeracy, study skills, and ESL.
