Frequently Ask Questions

What services do we provide?

We provide day education for 36 weeks per year.

Do you offer residential placements?

As of September 2019 we are no longer a Residential School.

How long does the admission process take?

Our admission process does not take very long. In most cases, the time consuming part of the process is getting the funding for the placement from the Local Authority as authorities need to ensure the school can meet the needs of the child.

How much will it cost?

All our pupils’ fees are paid by the Local Authority in which the pupils’ parents/guardians reside. Parents need to make contact with their Local Authority in the first instance with regards to funding. All of our pupils have a statement of special educational needs. Some of our pupils are Looked After Children.

How do I know that this is the right school for my child?

The only way to find out is to come for a visit and have conversations with staff here at the school. You can come for an informal visit on your own or with your child. Contact us in advance so that we can ensure someone takes you around the school and residential houses.

Who can provide me with support and advice?

Do contact us if you have any questions, if we do not have the answers or are not in a position to give you advice, we will give you the contact details of parents who have had to deal with similar challenges. In addition, check our links page.
