Learning Support

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. Relevant charges for available support are provided below:

  • Cognitive processing skills, e.g. memory, phonological awareness, speed of phonological processing
