Cross College Support

At St Vincent we are committed to supporting our students so that they can achieve their full potential. The quality of learning support in the college resulted in an Ofsted Team visiting us in November 2012 to observe the good practice we demonstrate in this area of work. Specialist workshops are available for students needing support with study skills, SpLD (Dyslexia and Dyspraxia), hearing impairment, visual impairment and any medical requirements.

We also liaise with external agencies, including Physiotherapists, Educational Psychologists, HAS (Hampshire Autistic Society) and Specialist teachers and others, who make regular visits to support our students where need is identified.


Initial Screening

At enrolment all students undertake an assessment which identifies each student’s preferred learning style as well as flagging any areas where the Learning Support Team can offer support. Any student identified who may benefit from accessing our Learning Support will be provided with guidance and support about such services in a discreet and understanding manner. By identifying students’ individual needs and providing the appropriate support we enable students to achieve their full potential.

Exam Concessions

Special Exam Arrangements can be made where appropriate for students who are entitled to these concessions. This can include extra time or a separate room in which to take your exam, a scribe and/or reader and use of laptops. If you have such concessions in school please contact the Learning Support Team on 023 92 603674.
