Special Educational Needs (SEN)

We were awarded the International Provision of the Year for our work for students with special needs, including the new Learning Solutions Centre

Students have a learning difficulty, if they

  • have significant learning gaps when compared to the majority of students of the same age,
  • have difficulties in learning despite differentiation in the classroom, or
  • have difficulties in independently making use of the educational facilities provided in the classroom.

The school has a team of qualified teachers with specialist facilities who offer support in the form of in-class or pullout sessions, or a combination of both. The support in EYFS is primarily in the form of early intervention for catering to developmental needs (social, emotional, speech and communication, motor and sensory).

All SEN students appear for IGCSE and IB exams along with their peers. However, they have the option to choose fewer subjects. Each year our IB students with special needs successfully complete the course and move on to pursue higher studies at university level.

Our admissions policy requires parents to declare if their child has any special learning needs. If it becomes known that such needs were not disclosed, the school reserves the right to not admit the child. In case it is discovered after admission and we are unable to support the learning needs, the school reserves the right to review the student continuing their education here, in the best interest of the student.

Learning Solutions

Learning Solutions is a ground-breaking initiative undertaken with the purpose of providing multiple services to our SEN students, including access to external professionals and therapists.

The Learning Solutions Centre serves an extension of our existing SEN provision enabling the school to offer a wide range of therapeutic services, assessments and training to benefit students.

Our aim:

  • Centralise all SEN services under one roof for students and their families
  • Provide cost effective and reliable services in a safe and secure environment
  • Develop the range of early intervention possibilities, as research indicates that early intervention is the key to a student’s development
  • Enhance outreach programmes through SEN services and teacher training
