Admissions

Choosing the right school or college for your child can be a challenging and time-consuming process. We are here to help.

All students who attend Trinity School and College must be in receipt of an Education, Health and Care plan (EHCP) or at least at the proposed stage of issue of the EHCP plan.  If you would like to come in to view the school in the first instance please email a copy of your child's Education, Health and Care plan to  admissions@trinityschoolrochester.co.uk.  If you would like further information please contact Jacqueline Clark, Admissions Manager on 07376 521 438.

Trinity School and College is able to accommodate a variety of needs and provisions, and is appropriate for learners with SEN statements or EHC Plans, with application being considered individually.

Children for whom, until now, school has represented failure, who lack confidence and self-esteem, or who have experienced bullying, often feel that at Trinity they belong to a community that understands and welcomes them.

Generally we are unable to support pupils with the following needs:

Learners with severe learning difficulties, profound and complex speech and language needs, complex autism or learners who are working within the early years foundation levels 
Learners with a diagnosis of PDA / ODD / FAS
Learners who have a diagnosis of Epilepsy 
Learners who require 1:1 support with toileting
Learners with a primary need of a physical disability or those who require the use of a wheelchair
Learners with a primary need of SEMH
Learners with behavioural issues where their behaviour or attitude might disrupt the education or welfare of others at the school. 

Learners who require Sensory Integration/daily sensory circuits

Learners with a primary need of significant hearing loss or visual impairment 

Admissions process

After an initial interview with the parents or carers, at which their child’s needs can be discussed, we may request a further meeting with parents or carers with the prospective pupil present.

All pupils are invited for four Taster Days following a successful meeting.  This allows them to sample a typical day and helps the school gain an insight into their specific strengths and needs.

The school will look at each child on an individual basis and, following their Taster Days, will offer entry on condition that a suitable place is available for the child’s learning ability, age and emotional needs.  There is usually a waiting list for students to attend taster days.

Information from existing/relevant and up-to-date assessments by recognised specialists such as Educational Psychologists, Paediatricians and Speech & Language therapists may also be used to make an informed decision.
