Admission of Students with Additional Educational Needs (AEN)

The BS will accept students with additional educational needs if the school can support and provide a meaningful education for them. Parents are required to inform the school, when making an application, of any known and pre-existing Additional Educational Need including physical or medical needs that may affect the school’s ability to provide a safe and appropriate educational experience for the student. Failure to provide such information may result in any offer of a place being withdrawn before entry. If such issues are disclosed after entry to the school, it may result in the immediate termination of the contract between the school and the family.
