The Learning Support Department

We provide a comprehensive programme of learning and study support for students with additional learning needs.

The Learning Support Department is an integral part of the school. We can support pupils who have a specific learning difficulty with one-to-one and group work, as well as offering more general support to any pupils who need help with organisational skills, study skills, and exam technique. All pupils are welcome to visit the department, whether for regular timetabled lessons or as a place to complete work in a supportive atmosphere.

Learning Support is intended to identify and address any specific weaknesses that a pupil may have as a result of learning difficulties.

Study Support is aimed at pupils who may not need specialist Learning Support, but who will still benefit from additional support in order to develop effective study skills.

The department has teachers and an English as an Additional Language (EAL) specialist. Our staff are members of the Boarding Houses, which helps us maintain excellent communication with both subject teachers, personal tutors and pastoral staff.

Each pupil requiring learning or study support will receive a programme tailored to their individual needs. Any specialist lessons needed will be at an additional cost to parents.

The Library

The School Library is open daily and offers a quiet space in which pupils can study and read.

The library is fully-stocked with books and a selection of journals, magazines and newspapers are also available. Pupils can use the library's computer and printing facilities, as well as taking part in several events and reading challenges which take place throughout the academic year.
