What The Good Schools Guide says..
'If you breathe,' we were told, 'you get a trophy – perhaps just for being Mr Nice Guy’!' Hands-on – in all senses – no politically correct squeamishness about... 'Everyone’s allowed to be the person they want to be as long as they’re not upsetting others.'

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
