What the school says...
Pownall Hall School is a co-educational preparatory day school for children aged 2 to 11. Founded in 1895, we have exceptional results in the 11+ entrance examinations. Our pupils are given an excellent grounding in academics, sports, music and drama and the many opportunities to perform in all public arenas gives the children much confidence. Our children take part in many different sports utilising the 8+ acre site that includes tennis courts, sports hall and astro-pitch. We have three choirs and a chamber orchestra. ...Read more

Special Education Needs
Provision for learning support is excellent and was highlighted as a strength of the school in a recent ISI inspection report. This provision works sensitively to support the ethos of academic excellence, which is the main strength of the school. Children’s progress is carefully monitored throughout the school and close liaison is maintained between form teachers and the SENDCo regarding any difficulties that may have arisen. Further assessment can take place in school by the qualified SENDCo or by an educational psychologist who is invited into school. There is close communication with parents, and meetings are held to devise targets for IEPs. In class support is provided in many lessons, and one-to-one support is available four days a week, in a bright and welcoming department. We expect all to achieve well in mainstream classes and do not have any children with severe learning or behavioural difficulties. We have experience of, and have supported, children with mild cases of paediatric arthritis and muscular dystrophy. However the pupils currently in the school do not present a wide spectrum of difficulties; they mainly have specific learning difficulties including dyslexia, dyscalculia and dyspraxia. In the long term, pupils usually make sufficient progress to learn effectively without specialist support. The provision of the extension of children’s learning ie for Able, Gifted and Talented children is excellent.
