Learning support and SEN provision

Everyone can achieve their potential

We have an excellent reputation for helping bright girls with mild specific learning difficulties, such as dyslexia, to thrive in an academically selective school. There is a dedicated unit staffed by specialists who provide support to both girls and their parents throughout their school career.

Every girl is assessed and has a personalised learning approach that she, her parents and her teachers understand. Our approach is always to teach girls the coping strategies that will enable them to overcome their specific barriers to learning. Girls learn in the same lessons as other students but may drop Latin in Year 8 to take communications skills lessons with Mrs Kristina Symons, our Head of Learning Strategies – Senior School. Mrs Claire Polling is the dedicated Head of Learning Strategies – Junior School.

If you would like to have more information about how girls with special learning needs learn to thrive in our school then please contact us.
