Admissions Criteria

Pupil photo

Tower Hamlets Local Authority (LA) set the formal admission criteria for our school.

Pupils will:

  • have a combination of profound and multiple learning, health and care needs;
  • need sophisticated specialist support in terms of resources and staff;
  • have multi-professional assessments which specify clearly the profound and complex nature of the difficulties

Admission to the school is in line with the requirements of the 1996 Education Act and the Special Education Code of Practice, through a full multi-professional assessment. This assessment is co-ordinated by the Special Needs Section of the child’s Local Authority.

Tower Hamlets parents/carers can contact the SEN section directly at:

SEN Section
The Town Hall
160 Whitechapel Road
E1 1BJ

Tel: 020 7364 5000

If, after a visit, you decide that you would like your child to attend our school,  Tower Hamlets SEN section will process the admission papers and send them to us. We will then contact you to arrange a start date.
