Learning Support

Our vision is underpinned by the recognition that every child is unique and we respond to this with a personalised approach for every pupil.  We also recognise that in broader terms there are different categories of students with specific learning needs and we address these in school to ensure every learner achieves their full potential.

The Learning Support Department at Hillcrest Prep runs four programmes:

  1.  One-to-one Learning Support Programme to cater to pupil’s specific learning needs;
  2. EAL programme for pupils who come from non English speaking backgrounds;
  3. Gifted and Talented Programme — ‘Stretch & Fly’ — which provides an opportunity for pupils with unique opportunities to develop their individual talents and to strengthen their skills;
  4. In-class intervention, where the Learning Support department work with specific children or groups of children and subject specialist teachers to support progress.
