Secondary Learning Support
The Secondary Learning Support Department offers help to Secondary students who have an identified learning difficulty. The aim is to help them access the IB curriculum as much as possible.
The learning support is based on our belief in:
- empowering students to take control of their own learning through effective study skills
- helping students to understand their specific learning styles, including their strengths and areas of difficulty, and offering strategies to overcome those difficulties
- developing a partnership with subject teachers to help provide differentiated classroom strategies that enable students to reach their educational potential
- ensuring there is regular communication between the supported student, the school and home to maximise learning opportunities.
Experienced Learning Support staff help students who need curriculum support in two ways. One is an out-of-class programme - where students are taken out of class to work either individually or in a small group on learning and developing specific skills. Additionally, there is in-class support within specific subject areas. Additional academic support is also offered through after school drop-in sessions.
