How To Apply

Our very individual approach to each student extends to how we work with you during the application process, supporting you with the skills and experience of the staff team.

There are no specific requirements for a child or young person to gain a place; it’s more a question of us being sure that St Rose’s and St Martin’s is an appropriate setting in which their needs can be met and that we will be able support the young person as they grow and develop to fulfil their potential.

Following your initial contact you will have a conversation with a senior member of staff who will make arrangements for your visit(s) and will support you in gaining a place at St Rose’s and St Martin’s.

We welcome enquiries from individuals and families from across the UK.  Funding needs to be agreed with your ‘home’ local authority once we have established that St Rose’s and St Martin’s is able to meet your needs. It is also possible to privately fund some aspects of a placement.

Please do get in touch if we can be of any assistance in helping you decide whether St Rose’s is the best place for your son or daughter.  The best way to gain an appreciation of what St Rose’s and St Martin’s can offer is to make a visit (with or without the young person concerned) to see us at work.

To arrange a visit please contact Sheila Talwar, Principal on 01453 763793 or click here to email.



St Rose’s aims to provide a broad and balanced curriculum that offers stimulating opportunities appropriate to the needs of our students.




A team of experienced therapists are employed directly by the school to work alongside education and care staff. Collaborative therapy and sharing that knowledge is integral to the work of our school.



When a child or young person is happy, they have the best chance of progressing and achieving their goals. Ensuring that your child’s emotional needs are met is as important as their physical requirements.
