We carefully manage the admissions process to ensure successful transition for new students joining the school. The admissions process normally includes visits by parents and carers, a thorough assessment of the prospective student’s learning, social and care needs and visits to the current placement and home. We arrange transition visits to our school which may include an overnight stay for potential boarders. 



At the first stage of our admissions process, we strongly encourage you to come and visit our beautiful setting and observe our holistic approach. 

We hope that a visit to us will help you to feel fully informed about what Sheiling College can offer, and if you feel as though it is the right setting for you, we ask that you submit an application form to register your interest.
We use this as an opportunity to gather information and relevant reports, such as Education, Health and Care Plans to gain a greater insight into each young person. 

If it is agreed that the educational, social and therapeutic needs of the young person can be met, a formal assessment process will take place. This includes a thorough assessment carried out in their current educational placement or at their home, alongside an invitation for them to experience a day at Sheiling College. For residential boarders, this will include an overnight stay.
