Referral and admission information

Who can make a referral to our school?


Across our centres, we have places for up to 150 pupils. Our pupils are mixed and aged from 4 to 16. Referrals are made by the Local Authority for pupils who are either awaiting a specialist placement, in need of a school place, or have been excluded from school. Referrals from partnership schools can be made for pupils who are at risk of exclusion.

We welcome any enquiries and our team can be contacted on the number below if you require further information or would like any paper copies of the information contained on the site.
