Suitable Independent Senior Girls School Surrey ADD

(5 Posts)

I have a daughter (Year 5) currently in a State school diagnosed with moderate ADD. She is not aggressive or disruptive. However, she is behind in her learning as she gets distracted so easily, plus some fine motor skills and organisational issues. I am now thinking an Independent all girls school non selective would be good for her due to small classes. We are Guildford way but most of the schools seems to be selective. Any advice on suitable schools where there is good Learning Support appreciated.

(It is a school specifically for girls with special needs)

Have you tried Priorsfield if you are looking for mainstream education? Or St Teresa's? Not knowing the level of your DD's needs I'm not sure if they would be right for her, but they are probably the more SEN friendly schools in the area from what I've heard.

Limpsfield Grange caters for quite severe Sen and behavioural needs.

Many thanks for suggestions. My DD's SEN are not severe but quite complex. Priorsfield does look a possibility and will look a St Teresas.
