Special Education Needs

Nunnykirk specialises in pupils of average or above average ability who have specific learning difficulties. Our holistic approach ensures a curriculum specifically developed for dyslexic pupils where they can build self-esteem and confidence in a calm and supportive environment. The wide variety of subjects, hobbies, activities and games ensures that every pupil develops their potential. In addition the attention to detail in routines, diet and exercise contributes to pupils becoming mature, well-mannered, confident young people aware of community and world issues and able to move into our 6th Form or on to college, where they start the next phase of their education.
