Placement Availability

"Cressey has achieved great results with our students, far better than other similar schools. If my own child needed this sort of school, I'd want it to be Cressey."

Head of SEN, nearby Local Authority, Feb 2017

"For complex children, Cressey is our preferred provider. You're succeeding with the most challenging children we have. ... other schools just don't manage to do what you do."

Head of SEN, a West London LA, Nov 2017
