Admissions arrangements
Arbour House School is registered for young people from 6 years to 16 years with complex social and communication needs including autism. It operates as an independent co-educational special school which, as it provides up 12 places.

The School is owned and managed by the Potential Ltd (trading as POTENS). It is a school awaiting approval by the Secretary of State for Education under section 41 Children and Families Act 2014 allowing it to be named in a young person’s Education, Health and Care Plan.

With the support of the placement authority, a pre-placement assessment will be undertaken, following which the school’s admission panel will make a decision as to the suitability of the placement. If successful a carefully planned transition is undertaken with parents/carers fully involved.
