Admission to Ancora House School - community site, is via a referral process. The community site caters for young people from the Cheshire West and Chester local authority who are not able to attend their home school because of a medical need. All referrals to the Medical Education Team must come directly from the child’s school, using the Medical Education Referral Form. Schools fill in Part A and this must be supported by medical evidence from one of the following health professionals:

  • consultant paediatrician or adolescent psychiatrist
  • consultant child psychiatrist
  • hospital consultant

Please note: Supporting evidence from a General Practitioner alone cannot be accepted. The health professional will need to complete Part B of the referral form and return it to the referring school.

Referrals should be directed to:
