Academic Support

The Academic Support Department works with pupils, staff and parents to enable all pupils to access the curriculum and to achieve their full academic potential.

We understand that having a particular need is not a bar to high academic achievement. As part of our commitment to help every child realise their full potential, we recognise that children have different needs at different times and our Academic Support Department works with pupils and staff to provide timely support, whether this be throughout their time in Senior School or occasional support for shorter periods of time.

On entry to the Senior School additional needs are identified as early as possible and our SENCO uses information provided by our feeder schools, to ensure that those with particular learning difficulties or disabilities are helped accordingly with the transition, and staff alerted to their particular needs.

Pupils' progress and support is reviewed on a termly basis with staff, and formal and informal consultations take place regularly with parents. 

If parents have any questions about our Academic Support provision they are warmly invited to contact our Head of Academic Support, Miss Hannah Welsh, via the school office by telephone 0121 454 5831 or by email
