The College was selected to take part by the British Dyslexia Association and Patoss (The Professional Association of Teachers of Students with Specific Learning Difficulties).

The films aim to show how dyslexic children learn and best teaching practice for dyslexic students.

Late last year, a production team from Patoss visited Frewen and filmed students aged between 7 and 16 from the Prep and Senior School in lessons to record the dyslexia friendly techniques and approaches that Frewen College use to help students learn more effectively.

The six short films that have now been produced will be used by the British Dyslexia Association as a training resource to support and encourage other teachers wishing to teach students in a more dyslexia-friendly style.

Each of the videos focuses on a different aspect of teaching and learning at the school, such as the use of multi-sensory teaching methods and appropriate use of specific IT.

College Principal, Nick Goodman, commented: “We were very flattered that the BDA asked us to be involved in the project and the students seemed to really enjoy the filming experience.

“We are now looking forward to sharing the videos and we hope other dyslexic young people will be able to benefit from the amazing teaching that takes place at Frewen.”

The videos have now been published and can be viewed on Frewen College’s website:

Frewen is a unique school for young people between the ages of 7 and 19, with Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD) such as dyslexia, dyspraxia and dyscalculia.
