At Wycliffe, our experience shows that with appropriate teaching, support and resources, pupils with dyslexia and other special educational needs gain the confidence needed to go on to achieve superbly well.
In recognition of our provision for pupils with specific learning difficulties, Wycliffe has been accredited by CReSTeD (category DU), for the past twelve years.
Both the Preparatory and the Senior School have a designated Learning Support Unit where highly experienced, specialist teachers offer individual tuition to those pupils who need support to develop their skills.
The recent CReSTeD report states, ‘The commitment to excellent pastoral care, appropriately differentiated teaching and realistic expectations have resulted in pupils with a wide range of difficulties and needs being successful in reaching their potential.’ Or, as a Year 11 pupil wrote, ‘Wycliffe has inspired me always to do the best I can and never give up’.
