Our Open Mornings are from 9.30am to 11.30am on Thursday 21 November, Tuesday 21 January, Wednesday 25 March and Thursday 4 June.

Please email the school office to book your place admin@linksec.org.uk.

We ask that you arrive at 9.30am for the Principal’s presentation. Parking is available in the side roads adjacent to the school.  We advise parents/carers not to bring children to Open Mornings as they are designed for adults. If the school is the right setting for your child, a visit can be arranged at a later date.

Admissions

We hold open days every half term when parents can look around the school and meet the Headteacher and Senior Team. Children are offered a place at The Link Secondary School after a careful assessment process which allows us to be certain that we can meet their needs.

Whilst the primary need of pupils at the school is speech, language and communication many also have additional needs. For example, many of our pupils are diagnosed as being on the autism spectrum. Such secondary needs are taken into consideration during the assessment process. A child must have a Statement of Educational Needs or EHCP before being assessed by the school.

Oversubscription Criteria:

If The Link Secondary School is oversubscribed, the application will be added to the waiting list for the relevant Year Group and reassessed if a place becomes available in an appropriate Class. The school will check with the relevant Local Authority on an annual basis whether the application is still current.

Usually the initial enquiry is made by parents, but referrals also come from Local Authorities, whether on the parents’ or their own behalf.
