Where Budmouth College is named in a child's Statement of Special Educational Needs or Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP), the governing body recognises a duty to admit the child to the college. The admissions process for children with a Statement or EHCP is administered by the Local Authority.

There are currently no spaces in any year group, at Budmouth College.

If you are moving into the area, or are thinking of moving your son/daughter's school, please contact the College and we will let you know the current situation.

Applications need to be made to the Local Authority via their website:

If we are unable to offer your son/daughter a place and you would like to be included on our waiting list, please contact Mr R Jacobs: admissions@budmouth.dorset.sch.uk at the College.

There is the opportunity to appeal against a decision not to offer a place. Appeals are heard by an independent panel and their decision is binding on the College. Information can be found at:

Appeals are heard by an independent panel set up by the Local Authority.
