What The Good Schools Guide says..
Art and music are both strengths. Year 7s all learn the recorder and in year 8 they get the chance to play the ukelele! When we visited we were blown away by the bird sculptures made in art lessons which were inspired by their sister school in Madogo, Kenya.

Special Education Needs
At Waldegrave we believe pupils with special educational needs should be offered full access to a broad, balanced and relevant education, including appropriate access to the National Curriculum. The ethos of our school supports the aims of the Disability Discrimination Act. The school has an accessibility plan. Although the site is not yet fully accessible to all pupils with physical disabilities, we are making improvements as funding permits. All teachers in the school share the responsibility for identifying and responding to the special educational needs of all pupils. All teachers are teachers of pupils with special educational needs. A variety of methods is employed to meet the wide range of pupils needs: modification of materials, provision of individualised structured programmes and the use of a range of teaching methods as well as differing degrees of support. Use is made of the Learning Resources Centre and flexible learning methods. 10-09
