“Parents greatly appreciate the opportunities that the college provides for their children and virtually all would recommend the college to other parents.”
Learning for everybody
As a Catholic college we believe that each individual person has unique and infinite value in the sight of God. We therefore take the development of each student equally seriously. The role of the special educational needs department is to enable students who have special educational needs to gain equal access to the full curriculum and to take all measures necessary to ensure that this takes place. This is achieved by learning support staff working with all colleagues and other professionals to meet the individual needs of students as an integral part of normal curriculum delivery.
In years 10 and 11 some students are offered a differentiated timetable where appropriate, together with enhanced career provision and a personal business mentor. In all years students with special educational needs receive extra support, which is offered either as in-class support or as withdrawal sessions for individuals and small groups by skilled teachers and learning support assistants. We also have a significant number of able, gifted and talented students who are supported through a variety of activities, both curricular and extra-curricular.
