Appleford welcomes pupils aged 7 – 18 years, with specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia, dyscalculia, dyspraxia and associated learning needs. We are unable to support pupils with behavioural difficulties (EBD).
We understand that finding the best school for your child is paramount and our Registrar is here to help you in this process. Our easy admission steps below are designed to help you. We are very proud of our pupils’ successes and prospective parents visiting Appleford regularly comment on our unique environment and the very many ‘happy‘ faces they see on our pupils.
We welcome international pupils, provided they are fluent in English.
Privately funded Pupils
If the pupil is to be privately funded a contract is signed and a deposit is taken to secure a place.
Local Authority funded Pupils
Some pupils are funded by local authorities through Education Health Care Plans (EHCPS).
An application needs to be made to the local authority where the pupil resides for them to agree to name Appleford School on the pupil’s EHCP. If this happens the local authority will normally pay all school fees and may also fund relevant therapies such as speech and language and occupational therapy.
