We are committed to supporting pupils who are able to access the academic curriculum and who may need some extra help to achieve their full potential.
A pupil may have a medical condition or a learning difficulty such as dyslexia or dyspraxia or may need some help with organisational or time management skills.
The Learning Support team seek to identify pupils with a discrepancy between academic achievement and attainment in order to support pupils to achieve the results they are capable of, subject to reasonable adjustments being made.
Our Learning Support team will initially assess the pupil in consultation with the academic team and where necessary recommend a diagnostic screening assessment takes place. Once a need is identified, our Learning Support team works in close liaison with subject teachers and the pastoral team to help pupils develop suitable strategies to support their learning and become independent learners.
Our specialist team ensure that reasonable adjustments are made within the classroom and that the relevant access arrangements are put in place to support the pupil for internal and external examinations in line with the JCQ regulations.
For information regarding access arrangements for prospective pupils with a learning difficulty or disability, please refer to the admissions pages on our website for the relevant year of entry:
