Special Education Needs

Queen Mary's is a friendly, family school and the SfL (Support for Learning) Department sees itself as the hub of that environment. Any girl can visit us at any time during her school life here for whatever difficulty for as long - or short - a time as it takes to set her back on the rails. The most common difficulties are dyslexia, dyspraxia and Asperger's. The department has a literacy specialist, a numeracy specialist and an early years specialist and between us we cover most problems. We also run workshops for the whole school on study skills and revision techniques. 09-09
