Although Montacute School is a Special Academy, it is funded in exactly the same way as a Maintained Special School. 

If parents wish to have a place at Montacute School, they need to go through the same process as for any other Special School; which is is to tell their Local Authority that they would like their child or young person placed here. 

No child or young person can be given a place at Montacute School without an Education Health Care Plan (EHCP). 

Montacute School will then be asked by the Local Authority if they can provide a place. In making their decision, Montacute School will use their Admissions Policy.

Any appeals on decisions should be directed towards the Local Authority.

We look forward to hearing from you.
