Academic Extension and Support
Our small class sizes enable us to take account of each pupil’s ability. We offer academic extension to stretch more able students and enable our gifted and talented pupils to achieve their potential. Support is also available to those pupils who need some additional help in specific subjects.
After testing by our Learning Support Co-ordinator, an Individual Education Plan (IEP) is then drawn up for the pupil which states the nature and frequency of any support required; a copy of this will be given to parents and to the pupil’s teachers. There is a charge (£30.00 per hour, pro-rata for shared sessions) for this additional teaching and for some types of specialist assessment.
We can give support to pupils either individually or as a member of a group. The support given to our pupils is reviewed regularly to monitor progress and development. Our staff will refer pupils at any stage if they perceive a need for support.
Please note, our admissions criteria is that we welcome pupils with a range of abilities who can follow the main curriculum taught to their age group. However we are unable to offer facilities for pupils with extreme physical, learning or behavioural problems needing specialist care.
