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.
