About Westcountry SEN

Westcountry SEN is an educational service that strives to break down all barriers to learning. Whether these barriers are; Cognitive (e.g. dyslexia, dyspraxia or spectrum related); Emotional (e.g., fear of failure, fear of success or maths phobia); Or low confidence and lack of self-belief. We will help you break these barriers down and build strong lifelong foundations for all academic journeys.

We know our story, we know our purpose and we know how to make lifelong changes in education.

Let us help you make the same changes in yours or your child’s educational story and help you to unlock that potential.

“Though the barriers of life seem formidable, we find when we challenge them that they have no will.” Robert Breault

Student stories

Pippa and her team are amazing. Their kind, caring approach and knowledge helps children to realise their potential and build confidence. This sets them up to be the best that they can be. Highly recommend going to meet them and seeing what they offer.
