What says..

Always an interesting insight into a school is to ask for directions and note the response; those boys we asked were uniformly helpful and charming, courtesy and good manners are the norm here. One new boy told us not to worry; ‘Just ask,’ he said, ‘you can’t go far wrong.’ From the moment you enter the large bright foyer, decorated with a fascinating creation stretching up through two floors like a curling spine, you are in a genuinely stimulating building. In this instance it is all about experiment, discovery and excitement. Each of the three floors is allocated to a science...

Special Education Needs

At Warwick we recognise that boys may be academically able but may need support because they have a specific learning difficulty. There are a few boys in the school who have conditions such as dyslexia, dyspraxia and Asperger's Syndrome. The school has an excellent Curriculum Support department, which is staffed by experienced, qualified, specialist teachers. Every attempt is made to consider the needs of the individual and to meet those needs, and many such boys enjoy considerable success. Subject teachers are offered guidance on how best to manage the needs of pupils with special educational needs. There is no system of in-class support, but in some cases extra provision is made, for example a dyslexic boy might have lessons to help him to develop literacy skills. There is an additional charge if extra provision is made.
