Our history of embracing diversity of learning and teaching within an inclusive education environment reaches back to the inception of the Learning Centre and St Mary’s Unit in the 1980s.
Together, they are now named Diverse Learning.
Our Diverse Learning approach aims to support students with identified learning disabilities and difficulties to attend regular timetabled classes and actively participate with the learning environment.
Our Diverse Learning approach also includes our work in the St Mary’s Unit (SMU). We provide specific support and education for students with intellectual disability, through an individualised timetable and a range of general and specialised subjects. (Up to 20 places available across Years 7 – 12).
Our aim is to support students to become confident and engaged, to make positive choices and to be independent learners.
