Please contact your nearest Cabin initially regarding admissions. We will always be happy to welcome you for a visit to the Cabin when everyone is there so you can make the best decision for your child as placement within a mainstream school is often a difficult decision as the likelihood is this is where you will have had previous challenges. However, we believe the Cabin route, if there is space, provides the best outcomes.
