Learning Support

Shrewsbury School crest

At Shrewsbury School, we are pleased to offer learning support to pupils for whom it is likely to be of real benefit, but we are not a specialist school for pupils with special educational needs.

All pupils who enter Shrewsbury must have performed satisfactorily in our entrance tests. As a guide, we expect pupils taking Common Entrance to achieve an average score of no less than 55% across the subjects.

Shrewsbury’s Learning Support Department is led by Mrs Karen Mitchell, the full-time Head of Department, Mrs Amy Livingstone, full-time Deputy of Learning Support and includes four other part-time members of staff with specialist qualifications. The work of the Department is primarily geared toward helping pupils whose academic progress is informed by dyslexia or another specific learning difference (SpLD).

Pupils with a diagnosed SpLD have a tailored Individual Learning Plan, developed by the Learning Support Department, and tuition is offered outside the teaching timetable, taking place in one of the specialist rooms occupied by the Department.
