The Learning Support Department aims to maximise opportunities and success for pupils who have learning differences via specialist support. In addition, we offer highly bespoke Study Skills courses for both GCSE and A Level pupils, designed to promote independent study, motivation, and self-organisation.
As a department, we embrace the use of assistive technology, and for those pupils who meet the examination boards’ criteria, we can facilitate a range of Access Arrangements. Whole school literacy screening with the Lucid Exact online screening tool, together with in-house assessment carried out by specialist assessors, ensures that we have a full and detailed picture of any pupil’s individual needs, as they progress through Luckley House.
The overall aim of The Learning Support Department is to encourage self-belief, promote independent learning and celebrate neurodivergent thinking. With the right support, skills, and strategies we are confident that our learners will be empowered to succeed not just at school or university, but in the workplace and adult life.
