We are excited to welcome you to our fresh, forward thinking school, situated in the historic Somerset village of Meare.
Abbot’s Way’s calm, holistic environment is set in a beautiful Georgian house, within acres of land and surrounded by nature reserves. It boasts stunning, panoramic views of the Mendip hills and indeed the ancient Abbots Way track across the Somerset Levels.
Abbot’s Way School's mission is to provide an exemplary holistic, specialist education for students with dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia and associated needs, so that all students achieve their own personal potential, both academically and pastorally.
We believe that every child begins life as a keen learner with an enquiring mind, who instinctively strives to achieve. Abbot's Way ensures that their young people do exactly that.
Students with specific learning differences are naturally kinaesthetic, multi-sensory learners. Experiences they may have gone through will impact on self belief and self esteem because the world does not differentiate and because ‘kinaesthetic and multi-sensory’ is not always how learning is done.
Abbot’s Way uses a needs-led, multisensory approach to equip its exceptional students with an abundance of knowledge and furthermore, with skills crucial to support their greatest challenges. These can include:
- comprehension / processing
- concentration / organisation
- memory / communication
Alongside these, our students have a range of exceptional strengths, 'brilliance', which we focus on and encourage students to do so too.
