School for dyslexics

28th February 1997 at 00:00
The broadcaster Jon Snow and the architect Richard Rogers launched an appeal this week for the final sum of Pounds 300,000 to establish a specialised secondary day school for dyslexic children in London.

The Constable Educational Trust, established to raise the necessary Pounds 1.7 m to set up and run the school, reckons that dyslexia severely affects one child in 25.

The school is likely to be on the site of St Mark's Secondary in Fulham, south-west London. It will eventually take 100 fee-paying pupils, some of whom will be helped by bursaries established by the charitable trust.
