SUPPORT FOR LEARNING

Welcome to RHS Support for Learning Department.  We are a dedicated team of professionals who are committed to meeting the individual needs of our pupils. 

At some point in their school career, many pupils will require support.  Whether this is a long-term learning barrier, or a short-term package of support required following injury or illness, we are here to provide the necessary scaffolding to ensure your child has every opportunity to reach their potential.
