Frequently Asked Questions
We provide day education, education with weekly boarding and full boarding for 38 weeks per year. In addition we offer short term breaks for the pupils who are currently on our roll for an additional 4 weeks per year. Short term breaks can also be offered during term time for day pupils or weekly boarders after school or during weekends.
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.
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. It is possible for parents to pay for fees directly. If this is something you would like to explore, please contact us.
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.
