Additional Information

Learning Support coordinates and provides support for students with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) and students with additional support needs. The support offered covers the four broad areas of need of the SEND Code of Practice 2015, including cognition and learning; communication and interaction; sensory and/or physical and social emotional and mental health needs.  Support for students begins in the classroom and teachers take a flexible approach to meet students’ needs, providing adaptations to help students make progress. Students can also access additional learning support sessions which is tailored to the individual student’s support needs and complements their personal curriculum to help them to develop skills and make excellent progress. The Learning Support Coordinator is a fully qualified specialist teacher who is able to assess for specific learning differences such as dyslexia and for examination access arrangements. We take a whole-school approach to learning support to foster an inclusive environment where all students can thrive.

Bursaries are means-tested and can provide help up to full fees depending on parental income. Awards of Bursaries will be calculated on an annual basis and parents will be required to submit details of their finances each May or June.
