Admission Arrangements

Though we are an Academy, Cloughwood follows Cheshire West and Chester Council’s admissions procedures for children with special educational needs. Children who are under consideration for admission are discussed by the Area Admissions Panel and a place at Cloughwood may be recommended.

Parents are welcome to visit Cloughwood at any stage of the statementing process and should state, in writing, to the Special Educational Needs (SEN) Assessment & Monitoring team if they wish their child to be offered a place at Cloughwood.

Admissions are generally in September but can occur at any time throughout the year, providing there is a vacancy.
