More House School

External Training

More House School is the largest school in the country for pupils with special educational needs. 


It is committed to improving access to its unique approach and benefits, for children, young people and educational professionals beyond the School gates. More House School has devised specialist training opportunities to support the professional development of teaching assistants, teachers, therapists, SENDCos, senior leadership teams and governors.


Internationally recognised as a centre of excellence in the provision of transformational educational, social and residential provision for intelligent boys with Specific Learning Difficulties, Developmental Language Disorder and associated special educational needs, More House School is building a reputation for the highest quality professional development and training of practitioners in these areas. 

 We currently offer a wide breadth of training opportunities for school staff and external professionals, including: 

The Spotlight Seminar Series

 A provision of CPD-accredited twilight seminars covering a wide variety of SEND subjects, offered free of charge to teaching assistants, tutors, teachers, SENDCos, school leaders and governors from local and more distant schools, both in the state-maintained and independent sectors and in primary and secondary age-groups.

CPD-accredited Level 3 and 4 SEND Award 

 The SENDCo-Hub

Bringing together SENDCos to build a network of support, to develop understanding and confidence, to share best-practice and to problem-solve collectively.

ITT and School INSET Programme Support 

Supporting universities and other ITT providers through the provision of training sessions and lectures, either peripatetic or online, which are relevant to supporting neuro-atypical and SEND learners. We also offer ITT specialist school placements and teaching practice.

Delivering bespoke INSET staff-training sessions for schools, responding to schools' particular training-needs and interests.

On-site Advisory Visits/Online Consultancy Appointments  

We can offer bespoke training, consultancy and support to schools and school-groups, either in person or virtually, to help them develop a more effective understanding of, and provision for, SEND and neuro-atypical learners.

Conference Speaking and national SEND Training

The School currently delivers national SEND training for the Independent Schools Association (ISA), including the ISA's  training for SENDCos and is also heavily involved in both the design and delivery of the National SEND Conference for the Independent schools’ sector, in association with the Independent Schools Council (ISC). 

Words and their meanings provide an essential scaffold for understanding and expression in every subject. Yet teachers often assume that SEND pupils grasp these meanings when there are many holes in the wall, due to their slower development of vocabulary skills.
