The Children’s Trust School

The Children's Trust logo

The Children’s Trust School is a non-maintained special school for children and young people with complex education, health, therapy and care needs. All pupils are supported through personalised multidisciplinary programmes, created in partnership with their families and carers, delivered in beautiful grounds, set amongst a 24-acre site at The Children’s Trust’s national specialist centre in Surrey.

As a regional school we admit children and young people from a wide catchment area across the South East of England. We are able to support up to 44 children who have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) where neurodisability, including complex needs, require an integrated approach from a team of multidisciplinary professionals.

We have an on-site specialist nursery available for children aged two years and above. We also aim to support children aged 0-5 with additional health and educational needs through Taddies, our early years parent and child group through a weekly offer.

With both day and residential placements available, our School is regulated by Ofsted, rated ‘Good with Outstanding Leadership and Management’. Our three residential houses are co-located on our 24-acre site and registered as Children’s Homes, regulated by both Ofsted Care and the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

We operate a 39-week educational curriculum with extended social/leisure activities during half terms and holidays, providing a flexible residential programme for residential pupils of up to 52 weeks, with flexibility for weekend visits home where suitable.

Our aim is to provide specialist, high-quality, multidisciplinary education and care to meet each pupil’s individual complex needs, which recognises and celebrates all achievements in a safe and happy environment, with access to a wide range of on-site professionals including teachers (including visual impairment and multisensory impairment), specialist support staff, therapists, consultants, doctors, and paediatric nurses.
