Applications Assessments

If you think Henshaws is the right place for you, we would encourage you to make an application. We recommend applying with plenty of time before your chosen start date. This gives your local authority the time they need to make a funding decision.

Apply today

You will need to complete an application form, and enclose a copy of your latest Education, Health and Care Plan. Our transitions team will offer guidance and support to help you complete this paperwork and will request additional information from your school if required.


At part of the application process, we will review all the information that you’ve sent as part of your pre-assessment. If we believe we can meet your requirements, we will invite you to college for an assessment day.

It’s a really important step in the process. It helps us to determine the care, clinical support, therapy and study programmes that we believe will suit you best.
