Our Referrals 2016-12-27T13:12:38+00:00


Places at PHOENIXPLACE are available by consultation with home and surrounding boroughs, Academies, Schools, AEPs, PRUs and Local Authority departments responsible for placing learners.

We cater for girls who;

  • have a statement of special educational needs and/or Education, Health and Care Plans (or it is in the process of being finalised)
  • are having difficulties with continuing within a mainstream setting due to behaviour or learning difficulties
  • are designated as a ‘vulnerable child’ e.g. non-attender, looked after
  • are between the ages of 11-16


  • The needs of the pupil will be considered alongside the needs of the whole school population, the skills of the staff and the ability of the school to meet the pupils’ needs
  • Admission will depend upon the number of places available and the type of place required. A balanced intake is necessary to maintain continuity and progression and to continue to provide high quality education
  • Pupils can be admitted at any key stage providing there is space in the appropriate class and that the balance of the group can be maintained
  • Entry can be at any point of the year
  • Referrals are made either for full time, part time and are for a minimum of one terms placement. Dual placements also considered
  • Referring authorities must allow 10 clear working days before pupil/s start (exceptional circumstances can be discussed) to allow time for the referral process to complete
