The Children's Trust School is a non-maintained independent special school for children and young people aged 2-19 with complex health and medical needs and multiple barriers to learning. All pupils are supported through personalised multidisciplinary programmes, created in partnership with their families and carers, delivered in beautiful grounds, set within a 24-acre site at The Children's Trust national specialist centre in Surrey.

Multidisciplinary education

Our aim is to provide specialist, high-quality, multidisciplinary education and care to meet each pupil's individual needs. We recognise and celebrate all achievements in a safe and happy environment, with access to a wide range of onsite professionals including teachers, specialist support staff, therapists, consultants, doctors and paediatric nurses.

Who we support

As a regional school we admit children and young people from a wide catchment area across the South East of England and further afield. We are able to support 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.

Residential care

With both day and residential placements available, our School is regulated by Ofsted Education and rated as 'Outstanding'. Our residential houses are located on our 24-acre site and registered as Children's Homes, regulated by Ofsted Care and rated as a 'Good' provider.

Flexible programmes

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