Our teachers are passionate about learning and dedicated to their work with our students. They are committed to working alongside parents and all the other important people who make up a student’s team, transforming aspirations into reality. Teachers integrate all the significant information from parents, therapists, other agencies, and from the students themselves, to create lively motivating learning experiences, through in-class programmes and through our extensive range of curriculum enrichment activities.
