Abingdon House School is a school for children of average to high cognitive ability who have specific learning difficulties.
Abingdon House School is extending into Key Stage 4 in September 2017.
Please contact Mr Roy English, the Head Teacher, to discuss the suitability of your child. He will then invite you to tour the school to see our students working within the class/therapy rooms:
Phone: 020 3750 5526
The School will need to see any standardised assessment reports that you may have for your child, for example from an Educational Psychologist, Speech and Language Therapist, Occupational Therapist or Physiotherapist. Plus, a copy of your child’s Statement or Educational Health Care Plan would be very helpful. However it is not a condition of admission that your child must have a Statement or Educational Health Care Plan.
Suitability of children for admission is determined by a multi-disciplinary assessment conducted over one or two days. This may involve informal assessment sessions with the Head, therapists, and members of the special provision team as well as time spent in a classroom setting.
The criteria for admission are that children would benefit from the education and resources we offer at Abingdon House School and that their admission would not adversely affect the education of other pupils. Pupils with dyslexia, dyspraxia, speech and language delays, and social and communication difficulties, Aspergers (High-Functioning Autism), ADHD or with physical disabilities* are admitted if they meet one or a combination of these criteria.
*Please note however, that the school is housed in a four-storey building without a lift.
Academic year 2016/2017 – £29,850 per academic year.
