Learning Support

At Ardingly College we understand that some of our students may need a little more time and support to get to their desired destination, whether that is building better organisational skills for school life, or using focused Learning Support to achieve their academic potential. We focus on building confidence with our students. We are staffed by highly-qualified specialist teachers, who pride themselves on quality teaching, always encouraging student self-belief and positivity.

We monitor students and work closely with them, and their parents, to help overcome any barriers that their difficulties present. We offer one-to-one or small group lessons in a dedicated suite of classrooms, and help with study skills, literacy acquisition and mathematics.

Following receipt of a specialist report, a Learning Support Provision Plan is completed. Each Plan is discussed with the individual student before circulation to all subject teachers and house staff.

We are aware that for some students who have learning support needs, the future can seem disorientating. With our supportive and personalised approach, we truly believe we can help our students to understand their future options and assist them in their preparations for life after Ardingly College.
