Admissions to Presfield School are completed through Sefton Local Authority SEN Department. Pupils are required to have (or be in the process of receiving) a Statement or Education, Health Care Plan which details a diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Disorder.

The local authority will contact the school and ask for a pupil to be considered for a place. Following a visit to the school and an assessment of pupil need, Presfield may be named as the school for the young person.

Transition visits vary depending on the school year the pupil enters into. For Year 7 students there is a comprehensive transition package that begins early in the summer term.

Sixth Form – Entry into Presfield Sixth Form follows the same process as for other year groups. Discussion will take place during the Annual Review process in the young person’s current school and Sefton SEN department will make the necessary arrangements with us.

We welcome prospective Parents and Carers at any time during the school year. Please call and make an appointment to come and visit. We would be delighted to show you the school and discuss all that we have to offer your young person.
