Special Education Needs

We work closely with the Ministry of Education, Special Education, RTLBs and specialists to provide a fully inclusive learning environment for those students with special learning needs.
Programmes, the surroundings and courses are developed to suit the individual needs of all students. Teachers work collaboratively with skilled teaching assistants and advisors to provide the best possible learning opportunities for the boys.
We have well developed pathways to transition students for life and learning after secondary school.
