Limespring School

Director’s Welcome

Welcome to Limespring Education Centre. Thank you for your interest in this established North London centre for children with Dyslexia, Dyspraxia and Dyscalulia.

Limespring Education Centre creates a learning experience that every child enjoys – confident to engage with their learning, to demonstrate their own achievements and emerge, feeling a pride in their success. High expectations are the norm for all children and individual talents and aspirations celebrated. Your child will shine.

Limespring Education started out as  a small, independent junior school that opened in January 2012 in East Finchley, North London for children with specific learning differences such as Dyslexia, Dyspraxia and Dycalculia. The school offered a mixture of full-time education, specialist booster sessions, assessments and training/workshops for teachers and parents.

In July 2019 the school closed its doors to full-time pupils – however we are still a centre of excellence offering specialist support and advice, assessments and training as well as teaching. We continue to use our expertise to offer an exciting approach to learning  tailored to the needs of your child.

Your child is special, with particular qualities, talents and interests. Due to puzzling and perplexing differences in the way your child learns – sometimes called dyspraxia, dyslexia or other terms – your child’s confidence, self-esteem and learning has started to be affected. Your child’s relationship with their teachers (and school) and their peers may also have begun to change.

Each child is taught in small groups. The teaching is inspiring, supported by specialist teaching, social and therapeutic input. The team meets with parents and carers regularly to review progress.

Simply stated, children at Limespring will engage, emerge and shine.
