The curriculum: Calder House is a small, co-educational day school for pupils who, for various reasons, are out of step with their potential. We offer a friendly, non-competitive environment in which children with dyslexia, dyspraxia and other specific learning/language difficulties are encouraged to enjoy school while developing the skills they need to successfully return to mainstream education. Our average class size is eight with a staff to pupil ratio of one to four.
Headteacher: Mrs Karen Parsons
A specialist approach: We offer a whole-school approach to specialist education – one which delivers a carefully structured programme of one-to-one support within a normal school environment.
