What The Good Schools Guide says..
Smoke signals were coming from a distance – a sign that twice-weekly Forestry Club was running deep in the wonderful grounds. In the foreground, a willow structure was under construction. This was the result of a collaboration between a year 9 boy and local artist Mark Ford, who sculpts with willow. The introduction was Quick’s brainwave as he explains: ‘This lad was brilliant at building treehouses, he was getting commissions from the other kids, but it just wasn’t safe. I thought how can I stop that, but keep the creativity ...

What The Good Schools Guide says
Since 2014, David Quick. Formerly vice principal across the federated schools of St John’s and King Richard Schools in Cyprus, and an assistant Headteacher at Windsor School, an MoD boarding school in Germany.
Began as a science teacher, and has been a member of the BECTa science working group and an assistant examiner in GCSE physics and A level chemistry. Still teaches science to the year 7s, describing teaching as ‘my sanctuary’.
He had a bruising start at the school. It has moved on his watch from an SpLD school closer to a special school intake, and to take more autistic pupils, something which not all of the old SpLD camp parents were happy about. He also readily admits taking in one or two pupils in his early...
Special Education Needs
We are a centre of excellence for moderate but complex specific learning difficulties including AD(H)D, dyslexia, dyspraxia, Asperger's Syndrome (mild) and others that may overlap. Slindon is also a haven for less able or vulnerable pupils who will not thrive in large classes. We have a warm and friendly atmosphere. The school adopts a holistic approach to learning support. Small classes with experienced teachers and a large team of classroom assistants are further supported by ICT, a dyslexia unit, dietary measures, Bowen therapy and medication. Special Needs planning is present at every level. Individual Education Planning goes beyond the classroom and is truly unique. Every pupil is fully included, enabled, valued and encouraged. 10-09
