Pupils at Elms Bank
Header image


Children residing in Bury are eligible to attend Elms Bank if they have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP). Pupils are referred to the school by the local authority and the majority of pupils join Elms Bank in Year 7, transferring from Millwood Primary Special School, as well as mainstream primary schools.  However, some pupils with statements are referred if they encounter difficulties whilst attending mainstream high schools.

Elms Bank has a maximum intake of 340, spread across eight-year groups. Within this, there is discrete specialist provision for pupils with autistic spectrum disorders.

We are immensely proud of school and welcome parents to visit us on Open Days or by making an appointment with the SENDCO.
