Mayor Opens Senior School Study Centre
September marked the opening of The Unicorn School's brand new Senior School Study Centre.
The Mayor of Abingdon-on-Thames, Councillor Helen Pighills, officially opened the Study Centre with a traditional ribbon-cutting ceremony. Councillor Pighills and a guest list of parents, Head Teachers and Dyslexia Specialists then toured the building and enjoyed tea and cake in our courtyard garden.
The Unicorn School is a leading, specialist day school for pupils aged 6 years and up, who have dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia, or who need support with Speech and Language. The school is undergoing ground breaking developments which will make us unique as the only dyslexia-specialist day school in Oxfordshire to provide GCSE education. Developments are well underway, with Year 9 provision already in place and GCSEs introduced from September 2016.
The Unicorn School provides a nurturing environment in which every pupil is helped to build self-confidence, appreciate their learning difficulties and develop their own personal learning style. All our teachers are specialists in working with dyslexia and related difficulties, equipping our pupils with the strategies for learning that will enable them to succeed in their future education and beyond.
The Unicorn School has a proven record of providing specialist education for both girls and boys from Year 2 and above, and pupils will now have the opportunity to complete their secondary education at our school. We are delighted to have opened our dedicated senior school building and we hope that you will share our enthusiasm.
