The Application Procedure

As you will understand, the nature of our schools requires an especially careful application process. In essence, we want to make sure that we can meet the needs of any child who applies and, if offered a place, that the child will succeed.

The Admissions process involves the following steps:

–Your careful review of the website

–If you have questions before applying, feel free to telephone the Principal of both CA London and CA East Anglia: Dr Duncan Rollo (Telephone: 01449 736404). A conversation with Dr Rollo will give you the opportunity to discuss your child’s needs and situation and, of course, to ask any questions you may have. Please note that applications for BOTH CA London and CA East Anglia must be sent to Dr Rollo, who is headquartered at CA East Anglia.

–You will be asked to forward information about your child. If your chid has an EHCP and you are expecting your local authority to fund the place, please send the EHCP and any other supporting documents—perhaps a report by an educational psychologist, a few reports from the child’s current school and any other information you believe will help our understanding of the child—to Dr Rollo.

–For private applications, please include a relatively recent report by an educational psychologist, some reports from your child’s current school and any other reports or information you believe will provide us with insights and understanding of your child.

–The information you have provided will be reviewed with great care so that we may determine if it is likely that we can meet your child’s needs. If this appears to be the case, Dr Rollo will write to you and suggest a meeting; your child should accompany you to the meeting and may also spend an hour with the senior teacher, who will provide an assessment.

–In some cases, we may request a short trial period for your child.

Our process enables us to make sure that our programmes and approaches are suitable for your child. It also gives us insight into the child’s ability to interact successfully with the children already attending CA London or CA East Anglia.
