Brown’s School’s rapid referral process delivers an efficient and supportive service to local authorities, parents and other professionals to ensure that children are placed in a service that is right for their needs.
Our key priority is to work in partnership with local authorities, parents, mainstream schools, colleges and other organisations to ensure that all receive an efficient referral process. We commit to delivering a rapid referral process that includes:

  • Contact as soon as possible once paperwork is received
  • Progressing with a rapid decision on acceptance of our school
  • Making suitable arrangements for the young person to visit the school, with a view to the placement starting on an agreed date

We have specific admission criteria relevant to the service and support that we offer. If we are unable to meet the young person’s needs, we will provide you with alternative options in order to secure a suitable placement.


Parents who want to find out more about Brown’s should contact the School office. We will be pleased to arrange an appointment when you can visit the School and have a meeting with the admissions officer or the Head Teacher.

If parents want their son or daughter to be enrolled then this will be followed by an informal interview and assessment of their child. Once an offer of a place is made then parents will be asked to complete and return the Entrance Form.
