Special Events/Announcements

We are sad to announce the death of the second Principal of Fairley House School, Mrs Patience Thomson. 

Happy New Year!

It is with huge disappointment that I write to inform you that following Government guidance the school is returning to Online Learning once again. We will follow the same successful structure as last time. We will follow your child’s timetable as normal and teach directly via TEAMs. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Christine or myself. Stay safe and I look forward to seeing you all very soon. 


Mr Michael C.N.Taylor



Welcome from the Headmaster

Children who cannot read and write as well as their peers can feel stupid, lose confidence and self-esteem and give up. Children feel stigmatised when they are withdrawn from class to receive extra help at their existing schools, or feel discouraged when given easier work than their classmates.

At Fairley House, we believe the solution is to give your child a level playing field; a school where all the children experience similar difficulties. By succeeding, some for the first time in their schooling, children can rebuild their self-esteem and confidence. 

It is our aim that most children return successfully to a mainstream environment.

Time and again I have seen the combination of insightful assessment, individual teaching and specialised therapy work its magic on our children. Through this, the trajectory of their lives is altered. What once seemed impossible is no longer so. Having worked for more than fifteen years in the field of dyslexia and dyspraxia, I understand just how wonderful that breakthrough is for parents and children alike.
