R.E.A.L. Independent Schools provide for boys and girls between the ages of 7-19 years.

Most children and young people are referred to R.E.A.L. Independent Schools via their home Local Authorities (LAs). Referrals will also be considered from other LAs, parents and external agencies.  This is subject to funding being met directly from the referring body.

Most children are accepted on the basis of full-time day provision.  However, part time and dual placements will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Admissions to the school can be made at any point in the academic year with the exception of referrals for young people in year eleven which need to be made during the Autumn term.

Over Subscription criteria:

Whilst maintained schools are required to publish the over subscription criteria on their website, the R.E.A.L. Independent School does not operate an admissions criteria. Information about our admissions procedure is documented in our Admissions policy.

Our admissions policy is located in the Policy section of our website here.

For general  information about referrals and admissions, please contact your own home local authority.
