Admissions to school are possible at any time during the school year if there is a place available. However, most learners start with us each September.

Learner numbers have increased in recent years with a number of learner's transferring from mainstream schools. If you would like your child to join us at Springside, we recommend that requests for places are made between September and March via the Local Authority SEND team. Our officer is Louise Dews. 


Whilst we are very happy to show you around school, and answer any questions you might have, we are not able to offer places directly.

Families need to contact the Rochdale SEND Team (01706 925077) who will explain the process in more detail.
