The main criteria for any young person joining us are - does the person want to be with us – are they keen to be part of our learning community - and are they likely to benefit from being with us? If these criteria are satisfied after an initial meeting, we invite prospective students to join us for a trial week at the College. This allows them to experience SML first-hand and helps everyone to know if it's the right choice for the student. We run trial weeks for up to two students at a time on selected term-time weeks only. These weeks are free and without obligation on either side.
If a place is offered and accepted the student may join us at the start of the next new term. Our next start date for new students will be 24th April 2017, after the Easter break. The closing date for Summer term applications is 7th April 2017. The closing date for Autumn term applications is 7th July 2017.
Fees - £1300 per term or £330 per month over a 12 month period.
SML College is part of the educational charity, the Centre for Self Managed Learning. Following a positive visit from Ofsted in October 2016 the Department for Education has agreed that SML College is not a school. Our unique position allows us to operate outside the constraints of school regulations such as curriculum requirements.
