Visiting secondary schools

If you would like your application to be considered under the medical criterion, see our medical priority guidance - not all schools have this as part of their admission arrangements.

If your child has an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP), the arrangements for your child’s transfer will be different. The SEN Services Team will contact you directly to explain the process further.
