We offer education to young people aged 5 to 19 (Year 1 - 14) with a diagnosis of autism who have been referred to the school by their local authority.
Please be aware that due to the high levels of formal local authority referrals we are receiving, we cannot organise visits for parents/carers of prospective pupils unless we have received a copy of the prospective pupil's Education, Health and Care Plan first. This is because we have a limited number of visit slots and we have to prioritise these slots for prospective pupils where we know we can meet need on paper. These slots are often booked up weeks in advance.
Although it is not the way we would like do it, we hope you understand why we have had to take this course of action.
Our admissions chart is a step-by-step guide to help you through the process of getting your child registered at our school.
If you are a professional working with a child/young person for whom we might be a suitable school, especially our residential provisions, we recommend that you contact us for an initial conversation about the child’s needs and the services we offer.
We would also be delighted to welcome you to visit Robert Ogden School.
Please note all our placements are made on the National Special Schools and Colleges Contract and not on any framework agreement or local version of the contract.
Admissions from outside the UK
If you are reading this page from outside the United Kingdom and would like the school to consider admitting a pupil who is currently residing outside the United Kingdom, please read the following policy statement.
The National Autistic Society's policy is to only admit pupils to its schools that are financially supported by a United Kingdom Local Authority. In order for this to happen, the pupil has to be resident in the United Kingdom and have recourse to public funds.
