The Inclusion Department is responsible for overseeing provision for students with special educational needs. These needs may be specific learning, general learning, emotional, social and behavioural, or physical impairment.
In years 10 and 11 students may take a support option where they will receive support with key skills and help with their examination subjects.
An ASDAN Award has also been introduced offering students opportunities to participate in extended work related learning through a programme leading to the ASDAN Youth Award.
