Unlocking the potential of dyslexic and dyspraxic children

Located in Wiltshire between Bristol, Bath and Chippenham, Calder House is a small, co-educational, day-school where children with dyslexia, dyscalculia, dyspraxia and language difficulties learn the skills they need to fulfil their potential.

We offer a whole-school approach to specialist education – one which delivers a carefully structured programme of one-to-one support, tailored to meet each child's individual needs, within a normal school environment.

We enjoy strong links with the many mainstream schools to which our pupils return, typically after two to three years at Calder House, having learned the skills and strategies they need to thrive.

  • Staff/pupil ratio of one to four
  • Maximum class size of eight
  • Approved by the DfES and CReSTeD
  • A member of the British Dyslexia Association and Dyspraxia Foundation
  • Follows the National Curriculum
  • Prepares pupils for SATs and independent schools' entry exams
