Welcome to the SEN Department

The aim of the Special Educational Needs (SEN) Department is to provide support for all students who need additional support to help them make progress and fulfil their potential academically, personally and socially. Some support is available from Teaching Assistants in lessons, however the Learning Base is open every day to help develop literacy and numeracy skills as well as offer support with homework/coursework and examination preparation.  All students are welcome to attend.

Our first concern is always the progress and wellbeing of your children and we appreciate any feedback you have: if you ever have any concerns or queries, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Opening Hours (under normal circumstances)
The Learning Base is open in the mornings from 8am – 8.30am on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, at lunchtimes from 1.10 – 1.25pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, and after school from 3 – 4pm on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.
