Established in 1985, we are a specialist school for dyslexic children in Years 3-11 where all children participate on a level playing field with their dyslexic peers. Children are taught strategies to enable them to understand and overcome barriers to learning and gain the confidence to be independent, positive learners.
Thank you for visiting our website – it is only a small indicator of this exceptional school and I am delighted to introduce myself and provide a short foreword to explain why Moon Hall School Reigate is the best choice you could make for your dyslexic child. I hope you will find the information helpful – and that you are inspired to visit us.
Last August, together with our year 11 pupils, Moon Hall School Reigate celebrated the most amazing GCSE results in our history.
Our wonderful students all progressed to their first choice destinations and we are extremely proud of their hard work and marvellous achievements. Their success was greatly enhanced by the superb academic and pastoral support from our dedicated, specialist staff.
The balance between providing a nurturing, supportive environment for dyslexic children, whilst also ensuring essential academic rigour, is evidenced through these phenomenal GCSE achievements. I can confirm, with confidence, that our pupils leave here happy, independent, motivated and well equipped to take on future challenges using skills developed and instilled here.
In many subjects our students achieved 100% pass rate at GCSE. By using 5 exam boards, and offering a variety of GCSE and BTEC options, our intention is to ensure that each child has the best opportunity to succeed.
Our pupils are encouraged to embrace their wonderful and often creative way of thinking and celebrate – not fear – their dyslexia (after all, they are in illustrious company – including Walt Disney, Richard Branson and Albert Einstein). We understand that for some children school will be challenging but, by providing specialist support, we ensure that all our pupils will achieve their potential during their time here. The evidence is that a well-supported child, one benefitting from dedicated teaching, can reach beyond original expectations. We invest significantly in ensuring that our teaching staff are highly trained in the best methods to meet the needs of our pupils and we focus on staying up to date with research and advancements in teaching dyslexic and dyscalculic pupils.
I am passionate about ensuring that every child has access to a good education and I am delighted that I was invited to contribute to a recent report by the British Dyslexic Association – please see below. I have also participated in a parliamentary committee to share my view on education with MPs and I kindly invite you to follow the school on twitter for updates.
As Executive Head of the Moon Hall Schools Educational Trust I – together with our governors and staff – am delighted to report a period of transformation and significant growth. I extend a very warm invitation to visit us, when you will discover for yourself the fantastic opportunities available here and the difference we make.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a visit and I look forward to welcoming you to our wonderful school.
