Established in 1985, we are a specialist school for dyslexic children in Years 3-6 where all children participate on a level playing field with their dyslexic peers. We are housed within a purpose built building within the grounds of Belmont Preparatory School. Children are taught strategies to enable them to understand and overcome barriers to learning and gain the confidence to be independent, positive learners through to secondary school and beyond.
Understanding the difference; making the difference.
Prior to coming to us, many of our pupils have had such a negative experience trying to learn to read that they have lost faith in themselves and their own ability, as well as the ability of those around them to help.
It is a sad thing when a bright child judges themselves a “failure” at age seven. A feeling that can be reinforced and magnified by age nine or ten. We create a level playing field, embedding dyslexia friendly teaching across our broad curriculum. Small, personally tailored learning groups led by highly trained teachers and supported by in house therapists and learning assistants is what makes the difference for individual children at Moon Hall School.
