Cornfield School

Cornfield School started as the feeder school for "Looked After" girls from Cornerways Children's Services' residential homes in the Redhill / Crawley area.

We have been admitting independent day pupils since September 2006, originally as a response to individual parents of locally excluded or vulnerable girls who were unable to manage in mainstream schools, mixed schools or boy-dominated Pupil Referral Units or Special Schools.

Day pupils usually have an Education Health and Care Plan for BESD, MLD or ASD. The school staff have received in house training in ASD by The National Autistic Society.

Cornfield School can accept three types of placement:

  • Day students in need of a more specialised education service referred either via a local authority or via direct enquiry from interested parents. However, in this instance Cornfield school cannot accept "Day Student Only" referrals on a boarder basis as the school does not directly provide accommodation.

  • As part of a specialist residential care referral from local authorities wishing to access residential care with a therapeutic service plus specialist education.

  • As part of a foster care referral from local authorities wishing to access residential care with a therapeutic service plus specialist education.
