The Friends of Archbishop's

The Archbishop's school helps children who are disabled or have had a difficult start in life. Amongst support for these children, they are given additional time to complete examinations if needed, and provided with papers in alternative format and teaching assistants trained to act as scribes. Children with visual impairments have the use of appropriate computers.
