We welcome applications from students with learning differences such as dyslexia or any type of mobility, sensory impairment or mental health challenge and are committed to ensuring that any difficulties do not interfere with your achievements in subjects you’re academically qualified to pursue.
Our Learning Support programmes are designed around each individual and may include 1:1 additional teaching time, sign language interpreters for deaf students, scribes and readers, electronic note taking and other specialist assistance or equipment.
We use a simple diagnostic test to assess the study skills of all full-time students. This enables us to identify any shortfalls and plan programmes that help each individual get the most from their studies and achieve the best possible grades.
The Learning Support team can help with everything from use of laptops to extra time in exams. We’re available to any student at any point during their time at Barton Peveril and offer a convenient drop-in facility as well as extensive online resources.
If your school made any special arrangements for you please let us know as soon as possible so that we can pursue strategies which have been successful with a view to continuing them at college.
Our campus is fully adapted for wheelchair users who have access to all teaching and public areas.
