Criteria for admission to Abingdon House School


Abingdon House School is able to accommodate a variety of needs and provisions through our specialist approach within a mainstream styled school.  We cater for pupils with specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia and dyspraxia, autistic spectrum condition, social communication difficulties and other associated needs.  Abingdon House School is appropriate for students with or without EHC Plans, as well as private or Local Authority funded, with each application being considered individually.


The school is not able to cater for pupils whose primary presenting need is behavioural.  This includes demand avoidance (PDA/EDA) and pupils requiring an ABA specific approach. These needs require specific support and structures that are outside of our mainstream style provision.  We follow the National Curriculum and are unable to support students who require support below this level (such as P Scales).

Procedure for Admission


Our process for Admissions is as follows:


  1. Fill in our admissions request form.

  2. Provide the school with all specialist reports and EHCPs where applicable.

  3. Where appropriate, your child will be invited to participate in trial days within the School.  They will be placed in a potentially suitable class will engage in the normal School day. Teachers, therapists and SENCos will observe your child throughout the day.

  4. From time to time, our team may deem it necessary to conduct some further assessments of your child during their time at the School.


Enrolment is year-round, which means that we can consider students at any point in the year.  We always aim, where possible, to have students start at the School at the beginning of a half or full term.


Both parents must be in agreement of their child attending Abingdon House School before we would offer a place, as a close working relationship between parents and School is essential.

Please note that the School is housed in a four-storey building without a lift, so please let us know if you should need anything to accommodate your visit.



Academic year 2023/24 = £15,317 per term (£45,951 per annum).
