Welcome from our founder & headteacher
The Levels School is an independent specialist day school offering high quality education and exemplary pastoral care to students with dyslexia and co-occurring difficulties.
We understand the journey our families and their children have been on before they get to us. That is why one of our core values is compassion - we get it!
At The Levels School, education is about your child. We see them as the individual. Their educational outcomes, spiritual and moral development, their mental and physical wellbeing and eventual independence and employability, all matter greatly to us with equal measure. What over-arches all of this for us is their happiness.
Finding the right school can be accompanied by a range of emotions. Communication and support for you all as a family is a priority for us. Take some time to look through our website as it is now and as it develops. Please do not hesitate to contact us through the contact page if you require any further information and a member of the team will give you a call.
The TLS Story
On 1st April, 2020, Bradley Middleton decided to create an SEN school...
Brad, himself dyslexic, recognised the need in Somerset for a local school for children with specific learning difficulties after the closure of another SEN school in March 2020. His vision was to build a school which had:
dedicated, approachable and enthusiastic staff who understood and related easily to children;
targeted and specialist teaching provision;
an almost bespoke curriculum designed to meet individual needs and interests;
a sense of community where everyone at the school celebrated neurological diversity and every child could feel confident enough to take risks in their education without the fear of failing or of reproach from others.
