Learning Support

Learning support tailored to the needs of your son

All students may be screened on entry and, where required, enter a learning support programme. The approach to learning support is holistic. 

Our SENCo is responsible for all learning support and has a team of learning support staff; these range from Specialist Teachers, Occupational Therapists, Speech and Language Therapists to Social and Emotional Learning teachers. Together, we provide individualised learning programmes for each Primary pupil or Secondary student which ensures that they are supported in their learning journey with us. We have the skills, experience and resources to provide a comprehensive support package. 

Learning difficulties we support

We support a wide range of Specific Learning Difficulties (SLD) including:

  • Literacy and numeracy difficulties such as Dyslexia and Dyscalculia
  • Speech and Language Difficulties
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) 
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Dyspraxia


We are a category DU (Dyslexia Unit) school with CReSTeD (Council for the Registration of Schools Teaching Dyslexics) accreditation. CReSTeD, supported by the British Dyslexia Association, acknowledges schools for the quality and provision of support for dyslexic pupils. Our category DU status means we are a school with a designated unit or centre providing specialist tuition on a small group or individual basis, according to need.
