Our SEN assessments come in the form of a Full Diagnostic Assessment by an Educational Psychologist or Specialist Teacher.

Dependent on the outcome of this assessment, Access Arrangements can be made for students with particular difficulties to help them during examinations. Where justified, students can receive extra time, the use of a computer, a reader or a scribe.
