'Everyone’s allowed to be the person they want to be as long as they’re not upsetting others.' Each day begins with a work-out – motor skills and hand-eye coordination stuff. ‘Enrichment’ classes for years 10 and 11 to plug gaps and provide one-to-one; staff good at buttonholing those who would benefit. Photography, graphics and arts impress – new iMacs, four professional quality printers...

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.

This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

Years you were there

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
