Additional Information

At St. Francis’ College, Letchworth, we have a small number of students with Special Educational Needs or Disabilities (SEND). These are mostly mild specific learning difficulties, such as dyslexia. Support is provided by our Individual Needs Department, which offers 1:1 or small group sessions to help with English, Mathematics, study skills and organisational skills. In-class support is also offered for younger students. Initial identification of those with SEND is done through reading-test screening and teacher referral. Our Individual Needs Co-ordinator then decides whether to arrange a College-based SEND assessment and the nature of support that will best suit that pupil. An Individual Educational Plan is created for each student. It is the College’s policy that each girl’s specific needs are met, in such a way that she is able to join in with all the activities of the College and make the best possible progress.

At St. Francis’ College we support all girls in their individual gifts and talents and endeavour to help each one of them to discover her passion and unlock her potential. Our Scholarship programme is designed to identify strengths, nurture commitment and resilience, provide excitement and challenge and to celebrate success.
