The SEND Department is well known for the care of and development of students with SEND needs.

The SEND department also assists colleagues in other areas to ensure as full as integration of SEND students into mainstream lessons.

We work across all three Key Stage areas. 

Key Stage 3 – There are two Access Classes (one in each of Year 8 and Year 9), with a maximum of 12 students and an Access Class Learning Support Assistant (LSA) in each class.

Key Stage 4 – the focus is on in class support for SEND students and small group support including supporting core subjects and revision for exams.

Key Stage 5 – Support continues for those students who choose to stay on with us in Sixth Form.
