Please note: Independent schools frequently offer IGCSEs or other qualifications alongside or as an alternative to GCSE. The DfE does not record performance data for these exams so independent school GCSE data is frequently misleading; parents should check the results with the schools.

Special Education Needs

Each class is able to accept some children with specific learning difficulties. Extra help for these children is available from the dedicated Learning Support Department. Children with special needs will be assessed with regard to (i) their own needs, (ii) the resources available in the Learning Support Department to meet those needs and (iii) the make-up and balance of the class they are approaching. This assessment will take place before a place in the class can be offered. Children with a statement of special educational needs can sometimes be accepted, provided local authority provision is in place to support the statement. Nov 09.
