FAQs

What is your admissions process?

We would ask to see an up to date Educational Psychologists report, together with any relevant reports, i.e. Speech and Language and Occupational Therapy reports.  It is also useful to see a school report.

Our team at Shapwick will then look at the paperwork and if we feel we can meet your child’s needs we will invite you and your child to visit Shapwick School.

If after your visit you would like to proceed further your child would be booked in to spend some taster days in school, this would include staying in the boarding house if it is a boarding placement

Do you take students with an EHCP?

Yes we do, in fact about half our students currently have an EHCP

Do you have day students?

Yes we have both boarding and day students

Do you carry out assessments?

We do not provide assessments for dyslexia.  Once a student starts at Shapwick they are assessed by our therapy team to see if they need either speech and language or occupational therapy

Do your students take GCSE’s?

Yes we do, we want our students to reach their full potential
