Kellett aspires to meet the needs of all its students. Both the Preparatory and Senior Schools have a limited number of places available for students with Special Educational Needs (SEN) whose individual requirements can be met in a mainstream setting, through provision of a differentiated curriculum. The number of places is determined by the level of student need within the SEN programme at the time.
All prospective students are assessed to ensure they meet the curriculum requirements with admission becoming more selective higher up the School.
Parents of students receiving SEN support are required to work closely with the SEN team who may decide your child needs the support of outside experts who work with the School, including speech therapists, occupational therapists and educational psychologists.
When students are preparing for external examinations, we ensure that they are thoroughly prepared and that any additional support necessary is in place.
The School also focuses on students whose academic ability significantly exceeds that of their peers. These students form part of our ‘Scholarship and Elite University Entry Programme’ which supports students who excel in particular areas.
