Admissions

Our aim is to give clear information to families and to assist Local Authorities to conclude a referral of a pupil as a successful admission as speedily as possible.

St Dominic’s School is approved by the Department of Education as a weekly residential and day special school for boys and girls from 7 -19, providing specialist support.  Most pupils and students are functioning from Level 1 or above, which may include pupils and students who can attain A* GCSEs and Level 3 qualifications. All applicants will have a Statement of Educational Need and many may have more than one area of difficulty.
