Hornby High School has a comprehensive Learning Support Department focusing on specialised programmes for students. Teaching is tailored to the individual, ranging from students requiring full-time support to those ‘catching up’ with school work.
The Learning Centre has a number of students who are working both toward NCEA and non-NCEA subjects.
Those students identified as needing a high level of support have an in-class teacher aide. The teacher’s aide will work with a group or with an individual as determined by the IEP goals.
All students identified as requiring learning support by staff are assessed using LUCID Rapid, Exact and Non-verbal tools. Further assessments are completed should this be required.
