Comments: Shapwick School, winner of the 2016 Independent Schools Association Alternative Provision award, provides specialist education for children with dyslexia, dyspraxia and dyscalculia. The school is co-educational and caters for students from age 8 to 19 with a 1:8 teacher/pupil ratio. It operates on the philosophy 'If children can’t learn the way you teach, then you need to teach the way they learn'. Shapwick understands how to teach the national curriculum in a way that overcomes students' learning difficulties. This develops their self-esteem, which in turn builds their self-confidence, and allows them to realise their potential and move on to the next stage of their education. 'The same road by different steps'
