The school accepts direct referrals from all local authorities throughout Scotland and the UK and has an excellent reputation for meeting the diverse needs of our children and young people. We continue to maintain dialogue with our colleagues in the local authority sector to ensure our services are designed to address their individual placement requirements.

Our referral process ensures that we undertake a sound assessment of need and plan our interventions in collaboration with the child, their parents and carers and all relevant partner agencies. This approach ensures that a clear outcomes based plan is in place to support and meet the individual needs of each child or young person.
