Dyslexia Schools

I've been doing a bit of research for Jean who is looking  for a secondary school for her 8 year old - already! They live in South London but are considering moving for a good school (Jean was a full term boarder as a child and hated it, so couldn't do it to her own child). 

I have been recommended 3 schools from the horses mouth as it were by another friend with an older child having already gone through the system and having just achieved very good GCSE results. I thought I'd pass the information on - you never know. 

These come highly reccomended:

The first for 6 to 13 year olds, is a co-educational independent in Battersea called The Dominie.

The second Appleford in Wiltshire is a co-ed for  7-14 year olds and takes day and boarders.

The third Bethany in Kent 11-18 years, day and boarders - right the way through to sixth form.

Look out for extra fees for specialist classes which most charge on top of regular school fees, apart from Bethany where the fee covers everything.

I can barely think about nurseries yet let alone schools for Erbie and he's going to be one of the young ones - August baby!
