Welcome to Shapwick School which is situated on the delightful Somerset levels, near to the coast, the Mendips, Quantocks and Exmoor. As a CReSTeD category ‘SP’ School, Shapwick specialises in supporting boys and girls aged 8 to 19 years whose education has been adversely affected by dyslexia, dyspraxia and dyscalculia. We employ a team of specialist teachers, speech & language therapists and occupational therapists who deliver to small classes (average size is 8) and individuals.

As one of the first specialist schools for children with dyslexia, dyscalculia and dyspraxia the school is very proud of its staffs’ experience at understanding each child’s individual needs and helping them to grow into confident, skilled and happy adults ready to take the next stage in their life.
