Since 1981, King's has run a very successful Dyslexia Centre for pupils diagnosed as having specific learning difficulties. In September 2003, a wider remit, to support all learning difficulties within the school, was adopted; the Learning Support Centre offers support for all. It is the aim of the Centre to try to help any child who is experiencing difficulties as early as possible, and lessons often begin while children are in the Pre-Prep Department.
The Centre is highly respected both locally and nationally and has developed into a resource centre for the area. Cambridge University and other bodies sometimes involve the school in their research.
The chief aim of the Centre is to improve children's literacy skills. Pupils are also taught study skills, touch typing and revision techniques.
