School Summary

National, US, UK, curricula.
GCSE, SAT exams.
55 students, 7-19 yrs.

Centre Academy is the UK's oldest day school for children with specific learning difficulties. The school teaches the skills and coping strategies that enable students with dyslexia, ADD, ADHD, and dyspraxia to succeed. The school also offers programmes and courses for gifted 'non-traditional learners' who profit from highly individualized instruction.

Class sizes are very small, usually no more than six to eight; and students profit from a significant amount of one-on-one instruction. Each student is tested and evaluated so that a programme can be designed to meet that student's individual needs. Students are placed according to need and current level of achievement, not on a pre-conceived notion of where a student should be at a given age. Teachers are dedicated professionals who have chosen to work with children who have special educational needs.

English and mathematics form the core of the curriculum. Other areas of study involve the humanities, science, foreign languages, ICT, art, drama, music, and sport. Individual counselling, speech and language therapy, and occupational therapy are available. There is a wide range of extra-curricular activities and an after-school Homework Club. The school works to develop a partnership between the student, the school, and the family. To this end parent conferences are a vital part of the continual assessment process.

Centre Academy follows the English National Curriculum through the GCSEs. Older students have the option of continuing and earning the American High School Diploma. There is an excellent record of student admissions to universities in the UK and the US, as well as to Sixth Form colleges.

Renowned for its happy and nurturing atmosphere, Centre Academy is a congenial mix of British, American, European, and other nationalities. Headquartered in a listed Edwardian building, the school is located in central London with convenient public transport serving all points in the city and also key suburban areas.
