Cognition and Learning

Some students have a global delay in learning which results in them learning at a different pace than their peers. They may have difficulty in acquiring basic literacy and numeracy skills, and in understanding basic concepts.

Some students may have a specific difficulty with one aspect of learning, e.g. dyslexia or dyspraxia, in processing verbal information or working memory.

Sensory and/or Physical Needs

Some students may have a physical disability, e.g. cerebral palsy or hemiplegia.

Other students may have visual impairment (VI) or hearing Impairment (HI)

We access support from the advisory service at the Local Authority who provide advice, guidance and support for students with an identified need.

Social, Emotional and Mental Health

There is a dedicated Support Centre for students who would benefit from social, emotional and mental health support. There is a team of mentors and two full time counsellors on site.

Students may access one of the following services:

  • 1 to 1 mentoring
  • 1 to 1 counselling sessions
  • 1 to 1 Drawing and Talking Therapy
  • Exam Stress Group
  • Transition Support in Year Seven


Speech Language and Communication

Speech and Language Centre (Part of the Michael Sterne Communication Centre)

The SLC (Speech and Language Centre) is a Hounslow Borough resource for pupils with indicators of/a diagnosis of Speech, Language and Communication Needs. Places are allocated by Hounslow local authority.

The aim of the Speech and Language Centre is to;

  • help pupils make progress towards their individual EHCP targets by working on a variety of language, literacy, numeracy, thinking, social communication and life skills programmes (as required).

In doing this:

  • Pupils will understand and learn to use strategies that work well for them – becoming increasingly self-aware, resilient, confident and independent.
  • Pupils will be able to achieve success at their level of learning.
  • Pupils will be equipped to move onto their next stage of learning (post 16) and be developing long-term life skills to ensure full participation in society.
