Prospective parents are welcome to visit the school by arrangement.  Referrals for places must be made through the Local Authority (LA).  Admissions are managed by the Local Authority.   

In the case of Early Years, the EY Exceptional Planning Group manages admission.  Children can be admitted to one of the early year’s classes from their second birthday.  All children admitted will have been identified by the health or education services as having special educational needs and referred by the Local Authority. 

Staff acknowledge the primary role of parents as the first educators of their children and we encourage a genuine partnership between parents and staff.  Children of statutory school age will need a statement of Special Education Needs.

If you are a parent who might require the Local Authority to refer your child for a place at the school please do ask for the relevant Head of Department for a more detailed and personalised visit. To contact Heads of Departments please call or email our admin team on 01452 874000 and by emailing
