Our inclusive approach to learning creates an active partnership between the child, his or her parents, and the teachers and other professionals here.
By working together, we aim to ensure that every pupil is able to reach their potential. This means recognising – and responding to – individual needs. Children may learn in different ways, at varying paces, and so we assess every student to establish how we can help.
The Head of Learning Support co-ordinates the school’s tailored programme of academic support, with assistance from House staff and subject teachers. As an independent school, our class groups are smaller than in state-funded schools and, where practical, we supplement this improved teacher-to-pupil ratio with additional work in small groups.
Our Admissions procedures explain the extent of the assistance we can provide to children needing additional academic support. In circumstances where we are not reasonably able to provide specific extra support within the basic school fees we will still endeavor to source this at an additional cost.
Having said that, we’re able to provide academic support for most of those who need it. This means that all pupils have the opportunity to play their full part in the life of the school.
