Support for Success.... Whether learning to type or getting extra tailored support, children flourish at The McLeod Centre for Learning


Children who struggle with reading and writing often compare their own achievements with those of their peers. They feel less intelligent, isolated and have low self-esteem.


At the McLeod Centre for Learning, children address their learning needs within a nurturing environment, and find their way in the academic world again – or even for the first time.


Before starting, children are assessed by specialist teachers and an individual programme is designed.


Children enrolled in the Morning school receive English (dyslexia), Maths (dyscalculia) and Touch-Typing (dyspraxia) lessons.


Groups are no larger than three and often individual. Dependant on needs, children usually attend one to five mornings a week, for usually one to three terms.


The McLeod Centre for Learning runs after school sessions for 5-18 years. A wide range of subjects to A-level are offered, as well as remedial handwriting, touch-typing and tutoring for 4+, 7+, 8+, 11+ and 13+ entry exams. Specialist support for dyslexia, dyspraxia and dyscalculia is also available. Their teachers, experienced in selection processes, provide interview practice for independent preparatory and senior schools.


The McLeod Centre for Learning’s touch-typing classes are after school and at weekends


during term time. Intensive courses run during holidays. Many children choose to continue to work on spelling while building typing speeds.


Amanda McLeod is the author and series editor of the Scholastic Handwriting series (Recreation to Year 6). She is a committee member of the National Handwriting Association, one of their trainers and also their representative in the media.
