Dear Concerned Mama,
Technically speaking, a school has no legal right to refuse a child admission if he has a learning difficulty. The problem usually comes in when parents want their child to receive certain treatments within the school (such as occupational or speech therapy for example); if these are not offered at the school, you obviously cannot demand them.
In addition, children with ADHD tend to cope better in smaller environments until such time as they can manage their own behaviour. But this would be a consideration for you, not the school per se.
You are also not obliged to divulge a diagnosis of ADHD as there is no threat of danger or life to the child or peers.
As an additional piece of information, a school may also not legally insist on medication as an ultimatum of being expelled.
