The SEND department recognise that many young people often learn in different ways and where a special educational need is identified, we endeavour to ensure appropriate intervention strategies are put in place to support the learning needs of the student. The SEND Department offer a range of intervention programmes, tailored to meet the needs of those students who may require additional support.

“It shouldn’t matter how slowly some children learn, as long as we are encouraging them not to stop.” Robert John Meehan.
