Secondary Student Support


In addition to support strategies and accommodations provided through mainstream teaching, the Secondary Section support team aims to tailor provision according to students’ individual learning needs.

Currently we offer:

  • Screening assessments for intervention programmes and access arrangements.
  • Evidence based literacy interventions at KS3.
  • Touch-typing intervention, for students eligible to use of laptop in examinations.
  • Access arrangements for external examinations, inclusive of ABRSM, IGCSE, IB and SAT.
  • Assistance in developing effective study habits and organisational systems, to support learning.
  • Individualised study sessions, to support curriculum access.
Our counselling service further supports all students in:
  • Personal, social and academic issues e.g. stress management, time management and organisational issues.
