Admissions process


We offer education to young people aged 4 to 22 with autism who have been referred by their local authority.

Our admissions chart is a step-by-step guide to help you through the process of getting your child registered for Sybil Elgar school.  You can download it today.

Whether you have already included our school on your child’s Education, Health & care Plan, or whether you are concerned that your current school is not meeting your child’s needs and you are considering other options, we hope you find this chart useful.

We also encourage you to contact us to find out more about what we provide, and to arrange a tour.


If you are working with a child for whom Sybil Elgar might be a suitable school, we recommend that you ring us for an initial conversation about the child’s needs and the services we offer.

We would also be delighted to welcome you to visit Sybil Elgar School.
