Following an inspection in which our standards in mainstream as well as specialist teaching were examined and reported on, we are delighted to announce that our Learning Development Unit has earned Kingsmead CRESTed accreditation.

This award is from the Council for the Registration of Schools Teaching Dyslexic pupils. It is official recognition that there are specialist teachers and resources available at Kingsmead to help and teach children with Dyslexia in a specialist department, PLUS highly-trained mainstream teachers and teaching assistants whose practice is identified as dyslexia-friendly too.

Those who know Kingsmead will know that this has, of course, been available for many, many years, but we are nevertheless very excited to receive public acknowledgement that we are specialists in the field.

You can find Kingsmead listed on their website under CReSTeD schools at
