WHAT WE DO:
We provide support for students who have additional learning needs relating to categories of SEND, defined in the DfE SEN Code of Practice document as:
Cognition and learning difficulties
Communication and Interaction difficulties
Sensory and physical difficulties
Social, emotional and mental health difficulties
We pride ourselves on being fully inclusive and all students attend mainstream lessons with their peers, to ensure they gain the highest specialist subject knowledge from their teachers. In line with the DfE Code of practice (link), Quality First Teaching is at the heart of support for SEND students. Click here to view the SEND Information Report

Transition is a very important part of every child or young person's life involving significant change.
