Teaching and Learning
The Special Educational Needs Department at Hobart High School is characterised by high expectations of student attainment and progress, in addition to a rigorous commitment to the independent educational development of the school’s SEN students. The department provides academic support for students at each Key Stage and is committed to the on-going development and provision of a range of targeted intervention programmes tailored to the individual needs of identified students.
Intervention programmes and in-class support are facilitated and delivered by an enthusiastic and committed team of Teaching Assistants who provide additional subject-specific support to the school’s teaching staff, in order to further advance the learning and progress of the school’s students within individual subject areas.
Students with Disabilities
Parents/Carers of students with disabilities are encouraged to visit the school in order to view the premises and its suitability; the school currently has slopes, supports on stairways, a lift, and toilets suitable for wheelchair users. Students with disabilities are actively encouraged to participate in all aspects of school life and achieve both academic and social successes at Hobart.
