Special Educational Needs Support in Education

Wargrave House recognises that all our students have very special needs. Compassion, tolerance, respect and positive intervention will lead to effective learning experiences.

The SENSE Team led by Stuart Jamieson, Head of Education, provides support to students, families and colleagues to ensure that individual student needs are responded to in an effective and timely way.
