I know it says on the website they offer 2 SENs but not sure in reality how things are treated in the admissions process...

Anyone? I'm interested in the answer to this too.

DS (who went through UCS and is at uni now) had boys in his year with dyslexia, dyspraxia, Aspie etc. Call the JB secretary and ask if they make accommodation in 7+. Do you have an Ed Psych report? If so, send it with the application. They should be able to do things like enlarge print on the exam paper/fewer questions per page, allow DS to bring a card to block out print, use coloured overlay. A report will come from pre-prep Head detailing what DS does currently.
One of my DS's year mates has dyspraxia, AS and, I suspect, a few other labels. He's on full scholarship at Stanford currently.

Horsemadmom, what are all your sons friends with dyslexia doing now?

My yr4 son is on the brink of a diagnosis. And I need some good news stories about how boys with Dyslexia cope in the academic selective schools in N London. Q
