ADDITIONAL SUPPORT

Learning Support

The Learning Support Department offers individually tailored specialist teaching in one-to-one lessons for pupils with dyslexia or similar learning difficulties. This might cover study skills, revision techniques and improving literacy. If specific problems are identified during the MidYIS testing, additional support can be provided through the Learning Support department at no additional charge.

An experienced Mathematics teacher also works in the Department, giving individual tuition to pupils with specific difficulties in numeracy. If a child simply needs extra support with prep, Supported Prep Sessions are staffed by the Learning Support Department.

English as an Additional Language

Specialist English lessons are offered to those pupils for whom English is not their first language, with the aim of making the curriculum more accessible and preparing pupils for public examinations such as the Cambridge examinations or IELTS qualification for entry to university in the UK.
