Specialist Teaching and Support

At Roslyn we have a number of systems and programmes in place to both support and extend our students in a whole range of areas. We have a team of skilled volunteers supported by a specialist Special Needs Teacher.

The programmes we offer include:

English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)
