The admissions process

Step 1

Priory College Swindon receives an expression of interest for a placement for a student. We welcome families and young people to contact us directly to arrange an informal visit at any time of the year.

Step 2

We invite the student and their parents/carers for an initial visit and tour of the college which can be done in a morning or afternoon.

Step 3

If the young person and their family like the college, we invite them to make a formal application.

Step 4

We invite the young person for an assessment visit at the college. This multidisciplinary assessment process typically lasts two to four hours.

Step 5

We feedback our findings from the assessment visit and, if we feel we are able to meet the student’s needs, a formal placement offer is made (subject to funding).
