Learning Support

Children have diverse learning needs. Working closely with teaching staff, the Learning Support Department recognises that some students need a more personalised approach to reach their potential in the mainstream setting. The Department offers one-to-one or small-group support, advice and guidance to any pupil who may need additional help with learning to fulfil their academic potential.

The Learning Support Department boasts a specialised team who work with teachers, parents and students to help create an innovative learning environment, where students can strive to be successful in their achievements and feel motivated and confident in their abilities.

Specific learning difficulties are recognised, assessed and catered for. Each child with a recognised Special Educational Need (SEN) has an individualised learning plan that allows him or her to participate fully in all areas of school life.

For students in the Senior School, access arrangements for exams are applied for and implemented, where appropriate, to allow students to have equal opportunities in formal exams.

We use a variety of teaching approaches, classroom support or small-group teaching and individual one-to-one sessions. New strategies and technology are a key part of best practice in creating an inclusive and dynamic learning experience.
