Britain's first secondary school for dyslexic children is planned for London, reports the London Evening Standard (p18).

The£1.7m school, financed by cash raised by parents with dyslexic children, is due to be opened in September next year and will target youngsters with high IQs who have severe problems with reading and writing.

The school is likely to be located on the site of the former St Mark's Secondary School in Fulham, and a roll of 100 pupils between the ages of 11 and 16 is planned. There will be no more than 10 per class.

It is envisaged that most pupils will be referred to the school by their local education authorities, who will be asked to foot£14,000-a-year fees. Bursaries will also be offered.
