All students admitted to the school must have a statement of special educational needs, Education, Health & Care Plan or be an emergency admission (following a request from their Local Authority) because they have just moved to the area or a placement at another school is no longer appropriate. Admissions must come through Surrey County Council. Surrey County Council hold Admission Panels in November and March each academic year for transfer in the following academic year for students in Year 6 and Year 11, these are called Generic Panel Meetings. Clifton Hill School is represented at three meetings i.e. Severe Learning Secondary, Autistic Spectrum Disorder Secondary and Post Sixteen. All Annual Reviews in which transfer may be recommended for those students currently in years 5 or 10 need to be received at the Local Education Office by the July of that academic year.
We recognise that admission to a special school or a change of school can be difficult and initially stressful for parents and students. For the student the initial introduction to the school can be a time of uncertainty. We aim to make the introduction to school life as friendly, welcoming and supportive as possible for both parents and student.
