21/02/11 – Appleford School launches four more Bursaries

Appleford, the Wiltshire school for children with dyslexia and associated learning difficulties, has launched four more Bursaries to fund specialist teaching.

The Shrewton-based co-educational school for children aged 7-16, will award four bursaries for up to 25% of the annual fees.

Individual Bursaries are worth up to £1,273.75 for a Day Pupil, and £1,880.25 for a Boarder per term.

Headmistress Lesley Nell said: “We are offering these new Bursaries to help fund specialist education for four new dyslexic students.

“At Appleford we aim to restore the confidence of each child, unlocking and developing their individual skills and talents. That’s what makes us special.”

“We want to extend our reach to those parents on lower incomes, who have children with dyslexia, and would like their child to enjoy the benefits of our unique approach.”

Founded in 1988, Appleford School is set in 8 acres of beautiful Wiltshire parkland. There are currently around 80 pupils.

School Co-Founder, Educational Psychologist Dr Peter Gardner, says his intention was to create a school where children with dyslexia would benefit from specialist teaching and be able to flourish in their education.

Appleford is such a success that it has been awarded ‘Outstanding’ in its latest Ofsted education inspection.
