Admissions


Glendinning House is a special school providing 120 places for boys and girls in the age range 7 to 19, who have a primary need of social communication and interaction including those on the Autism spectrum, whose needs cannot be met within a mainstream school due to environmental factors.

Our learners should be capable of accessing a mainstream curriculum with appropriate environmental adaptations.  For a child to be admitted the school must be named, by a local authority, in the child’s education, health and care plan (‘EHCP’).  Parents wishing their children to benefit from this provision should specify this to the Local Authority when their child’s EHCP is being discussed.

As a new school we will stagger our growth across the first 3 to 5 years. In our first year of opening we will have up to 48 places, please find an indictative diagram below describing how we may grow to our published admission number (PAN)
