Useful information

Fees and funding

Typically, local authorities, social services, education departments and health departments will be responsible for referring young people to Talocher School and pay their school fees. Having said that, parents and carers have a right to be involved at all stages of the process.

Talocher School has a transparent pricing structure. Our fees are matched to the individual’s needs and we review these annually and adjust them according to any requirements for additional/enhanced levels of adult support, the need for therapeutic provision as well as a need for the use of specialist external provisions to supplement an individual’s curriculum. Here at Talocher School, we guarantee fee reductions. This means that as children and young people progress and become more socially independent, their fees will reduce accordingly.

For more details on our fees please contact us directly to discuss how we can meet your needs by emailing:
