The number of places is determined by the level of student need within the ASN programme at the time. All prospective students are assessed to ensure they meet the curriculum requirements with admission becoming more selective higher up the School.

Parents of students receiving ASN Support are required to work closely with the ASN Team who may advise that your child needs the support of outside experts who work with the School, including speech therapists, occupational therapists and educational psychologists.

When students are preparing for external examinations, we ensure that they are thoroughly prepared and that any additional support necessary is in place.

The school also focuses on those students whose ability significantly exceeds that of their peers. These students form part of our ‘Further Challenge' provision which supports students who excel in particular areas.
