Additional Information

Learning Support 

Learning Support (LS) is a resource which can be drawn upon by anyone requiring support – long term, short term or occasional. Our support is not confined simply to those diagnosed with a specific learning need.

We can help with:

- Spelling, reading and writing difficulties
- Study skills, revision and exam technique
- Organisational difficulties
- Concentration and self-esteem issues
- Essay writing
- Handwriting
- Learning to learn
- Maths

The Learning Support Department is comprised of fully qualified teachers who are led by Susan Cohen, the Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO). The teachers are specialists in the teaching of pupils with specific learning needs. Support is available for:

- Dyslexia
- Dyspraxia
- Dyscalculia

All subject teachers and Housemasters/mistresses are made aware of a pupil’s individual needs. There is close liaison to ensure that pupils’ needs are addressed and met sympathetically and discreetly.

English as an Additional Language 

The English as an Additional Language (EAL) Department helps to fully integrate all pupils whose first language is not English into the academic, sporting, artistic and social aspects of school life by helping them to develop their English language skills. Pupils are encouraged to contribute to the school community and to be proud of their own culture.

English language skills are developed in the four areas of reading, writing, listening, speaking, and by expanding vocabulary, grammar and cultural awareness. Particular emphasis is placed on communicative skills. In addition, support may be given for other academic areas as the need arises.

Ensuring equality of access to the curriculum includes appropriate exam concessions. Pupils whose first language is not English are entitled to use a bi- lingual paper dictionary in public examinations and those who have been in the country for less than two years are also entitled to up to 25% additional time.
