Referral & Admissions Procedure

    "The beautiful thing about learning is that nobody can ever take it away from you." ~ B.B. King

    Referrals to the school are made by a young person’s school or Local Authority. A formal application for placement should be made to the Principal, accompanied by a recent IEP, Statement of Special Educational Needs, EHC Plan and associated reports. A social and medical history report should be included if available.

    admissionsAn initial assessment for a placement will be made based on the documentation provided. This will be followed by an offer of an interview and visit to the school for the student, parent/carers and representative from the referring agency.

    A decision on a placement offer will be made within seven days after the interview. If the placement is agreed by the school and local authority, parent/carers will be asked to confirm their acceptance. Referring agencies will be required to sign a placement agreement prior to the student starting at the school.


    If the school is oversubscribed,
    the local authority will be informed
    so that alternative placement can be arranged.
