All children entering the Royal Blind School must have significant vision impairment. Many of our pupils have additional disabilities and complex needs.

We accept admissions from all over the UK and abroad. The majority of children and young people attending our school have been referred by their local authority, on the basis of their assessed need.

Working in partnership

We work in partnership with local authorities and parents to assess whether the school can meet the needs of individual pupils. We build close working links with parents, carers and the local authorities’ education and social work departments before, during and after referral and admission.
