Independent (fee paying) schools are not listed in this application form. Please contact them directly to apply.

If your child has special educational needs (SEND) we follow a different process to decide what school is suitable. Your child should have an education, health and care plan (or statement of special educational needs). This names the school which will meet their needs best. If you have any questions or need any more information you can take a look at our SEND local offer.
