Learning Support

Thetford Grammar School is an inclusive community and our aim is to provide an education that, to the best of our abilities, can cater for all pupils who meet the requirements of our entrance procedures.

We recognise that some individuals will have particular needs which we will endeavour to address. Within our current and past list of pupils, we have supported a range of learning needs such as Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, ADHD and ASD. TGS is proud to be a CReSTeD School. CReSTeD is the Council for the Registration of Schools Teaching Dyslexic (SPLD) Pupils. TGS is a member of this council and is inspected every 3 years to ensure
that the provision of high standards is maintained. Please take time to read our excellent CReSTeD report for more insight into our work with dyslexic pupils:

We believe that our small and friendly class sizes enable us to help each individual pupil to maximize their learning potential. We pride ourselves not only on our ability to offer academic extension to encourage our gifted and talented pupils to achieve at the highest levels but also our ability to motivate and support those pupils who may need some additional help in specific subjects. We firmly believe that with the appropriate
level of support and encouragement many children are able to overcome their difficulties and succeed independently at the intrinsic academic levels of which they are capable.
