The Admissions Process
We welcome informal enquiries from parents who feel that Limpsfield Grange may be an appropriate school for their daughter. Parents, families and carers are asked to telephone the school to arrange and book a place on one of our regular Open Mornings, conducted by a member of the Senior Leadership Team. Alternatively parents can email firstname.lastname@example.org to book a place on an open morning or make an enquiry.
All of our students at Limpsfield Grange have an Education Health and Care Plan. Unfortunately we cannot accept admissions applications for students who do not have an Education Health and Care Plan.
We advise that parents and prospective students start looking at secondary provision from the start of Year 5.
Parents can express a preference for the type of provision (special secondary, specialist centre in a mainstream secondary school or mainstream secondary placement with support) at their daughter’s Year 5 Annual Review. Following the Annual Review their daughter’s paperwork will be submitted to the Area SEN Team who decide if the level of provision requested is suitable. Parents will be informed about the type of provision that has been agreed by their Area Special Needs Team, and will be encouraged to complete a Parental Preference Form at the start of Year 6. The Local Authority will then allocate the child a school place for Year 7, in the appropriate provision.
Mid-term admissions into other year groups, and at other times of the year, should be made via a SEN Case Officer.
“I think that had she not attended LGS she would have sunk without trace in a large comprehensive. She achieves and feels valued at LGS. We are immensely thankful for her chance to be a well-adjusted girl.”
We have Open Mornings running throughout the year but places are limited so please contact us well in advance. The Open Mornings start at 11.00am with an introductory talk by Mrs Wild, followed by a tour of the school, and should conclude by 12.30pm. Please note the mornings are for adults only, and it is advisable that your daughter does not attend the event. We do offer some 1:1 appointments with Mrs Wild on these days, but these are limited, so you are advised to book early.
Our next Open Mornings will be on the following dates:
Wednesday 18th September (limited to parents of those in September’s years 5 and 6 only) – fully booked
