Through Individual Education Plans, our subject specialists are best placed to ensure that each student reaches their academic potential, with reasonable adjustments made where necessary. The Learning Support Department develops our teaching staff’s understanding of specific learning profiles and conditions, ensuring that they feel comfortable supporting all students within the classroom. We aim to support the learning which takes place within the classroom rather than replace it.
We want to encourage all students to take control of their learning and feel comfortable with the tools, advice and support available at their disposal. Additional support may be provided in our co-curricular programme on Study Skills, or indeed developing the skillset to become better at spelling or handwriting. We screen all students upon their arrival at Trinity to ensure there is no aspect of their learning profile which requires additional support. For those who already have an identified need, we manage the transition to life at Trinity carefully with regular communication.
