Anyone have any knowledge of private or very good mainstream schools catering for ADHD at senior level? We are based around the Surrey/Twickenham area. Cheers!

Hi I think centre academy originally was for children with ADHD. Orleans has a good reputation for behavioural issues and special needs in general but I think it is a bit of a myth and I have heard of a few with ASD And ADHD who haven't fair ed well and consistancy of approach isn't a strong point. I know someone with a son at Crusts with ADHDThey also have a very high percentage with special needs so although they have a good team they are grossly over stretched so it doesn't quite work as planned who spoke highly of it and they had big problems at primary. Halliford has a good reputation with quirky boys.

sorry my message should read Orleans has a very high percentage with SEN not Christs Christs was meant to read as the better one!

Thanks mary ... We are looking at one of these schools, and know kids at Orleans. Don't know Christ's though, where is it?

Christs is in Richmond. No direct experience. Just another mum who I know had problems at primary but Christs was working for secondary
