How to Apply


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.
