Our Transitions and Tours


Prospective pupils, tours and admissions.



Our admission arrangements remain based with Somerset Local Authority and follow their processes. This can be found on their website here. Additional information can be found in the Mendip School Admissions Policy found here The Admissions Policy

Our PAN: 150. Our pupil number on roll can changes weekly.


We do not currently provision by year group but instead allocate places based on need and whether or not we could meet the needs of your child in an age appropriate group.  At the moment we are full across the school but are considering places for some class (usually lower primary) dependent on whether we would be able to meet their needs.

The consultation process must take place through the Local Authority, we would be unable to identify through a conversation with yourself whether or not we would be able to meet the needs of a child or young person. Once we receive the consultation pack from the Local Authority we are given 15 days to review the documentation and make a decision, the school would notify the Local Authority of the decision.  At this point it is up to the Local Authority to agree the most appropriate placement and notify parents/carers.  We are unable to accept any documents not provided by the Local Authority as they should hold all the relevant information, reports and assessment for each child.

Please email bookings@themendipschool.com if you are interested in a tour of the school. Please include the following in your email;

Name and contact details (email and phone) for parent/carer’s / Name and age of child / Childs diagnosis / Stage of consultation (are you just looking around or in contact with Local Authority)


We hold tour on the following time slots, please let us know your preference: Mondays at 1:15pm Tuesdays at 9:30am / Tuesdays at 1:15pm
