Learning Support

With the demands of the curriculum some boys need that added support to help them with their learning. Our department screens the boys after 2 terms and this can highlight any areas of learning which are not in line with general development.

Some boys are invited to join a small group in Pre-Prep (Reception to Year 2) to help them with aspects of literacy they find difficult. Others benefit from a one to one system where a programme can be developed to meet their individual needs.

Some boys take on Learning Support for a short period, perhaps two terms. Others need longer. In all instances particular emphasis is placed on developing and maintaining the boys self image. The department has an open door policy where pupils are able to come and ask for extra help as they feel they need it.
