Cotelands accepts referrals for students who are Emotionally Based School Refusers. We are able to offer small class sizes, tailored to individual needs.

Cotelands is suitable for a young person who, due to issues such as anxiety and low mood, is unable to access mainstream education, but who is ready and able to access class sizes of approximately 10  students (with or without support). We accept school aged mothers if they are EBSR and therefore would also benefit from attending a smaller provision.

Students at Cotelands attend full time (9.35am- 2.45pm) on-site and follow a GCSE and Functional Skills based curriculum. 

If you would like to refer a student, but are unsure if Cotelands is appropriate for them, please do contact Kate Maidment-Young, Head of Provision at Cotelands.

If you would like to refer a student , but they are not yet ready for the class sizes at Cotelands, then please do look at the information on the Springboard section of our website. A referral to Sonia Kapoor, Head of Provision at Springboard , may be more appropriate route, in order to attend smaller on- site classes and build resilience towards a possible place at Cotelands. Again, please feel free to contact either Sonia or Kate to discuss this:
