Admissions criteria

Mark College is a mixed special school, providing education for young people aged 10 to 19 years. We are able to support pupils with specific learning difficulties, including:

  • ASD
  • Dyscalculia
  • Dyslexia
  • Dyspraxia
  • Language disorders
  • Students with high anxiety

Places can be privately funded, Forces funded or where a student has an EHCP, funded by the Local Authority.

The admissions process

Mark College takes a highly individualised approach to admissions, considering each and every referral in-depth to ensure we can always provide high quality placements.

Before making an offer of a place, we invite young people to visit the school with their parents/carers. This gives everyone a chance to ensure they feel Mark College is a good fit and that it is appropriate to move forward with the admissions process. If so, the next step will be for us to arrange a trial with the young person. Following the trial, we will provide parents/carers and local authorities with feedback on:

  • Whether we feel we can meet the young person’s needs at Mark College
  • The type of individual learning and therapy package we could put together for the student
  • The fee for the young person’s placement
  • An official offer letter
