Nunnykirk School is a non-maintained special school approved by the Department for Education for pupils with specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia
 
For over 30 years (established in 1977) we have provided for the educational and social needs of boys and girls of average or above average intelligence who experience specific learning difficulties including dyslexia
 
The school admits pupils between the ages of 9 and 18 years on a day or weekly boarding basis. Although currently girls are only accepted as day pupils we are happy to discuss possible options with parents if they are seeking boarding for their daughter. Pupils come from both the local area and further afield including Scotland, Yorkshire, Cumbria and the Midlands - the school being the only one of its kind between Glasgow and Birmingham. 
 
We offer a wide ranging curriculum which caters specifically for children with dyslexia using teaching methods which have proved very successful particularly in key subjects such as Literacy and Maths. 
 
The school has also grown an excellent reputation for the quality of its creative arts achievements, in particular photography, which a number of former pupils have pursued as successful careers. 
 
We aim to: 
 
Provide a safe caring environment where everyone matters. 
Address an individual's needs. 
Build self-esteem and confidence. 
Remediate a pupil’s specific difficulties. 
Prepare pupils for college, courses and work when they leave school. 
Develop an open and understanding attitude to all members of society. 
Help every pupil reach their potential. 
Enable every pupil to enjoy life
