Referral Process

We accept referrals all year round for children and young people whose places are funded by a United Kingdom placing authority. The school provide spaces for day students who are living at home with parents or foster carers as well as Looked After Children (LAC) who are residents within Cambian residential services or other residential service external to Cambian. All referrals into our services are planned. We do not take emergency placements.
