Parents

Carwarden House Community School is a highly regarded school for young people between the ages of 11 to 19 who have moderate learning difficulties. We became an academy on 1st August 2014.

All of our students have a statement of special educational needs or Education, Health & Care Plan (EHCP) for moderate learning difficulties (MLD) and/or associated conditions. Our sixth-formers also have additional speech, language and communication needs (SLCN).

We admit up to 20 students every year in Year 7 in two classes of 10. Each class enjoys the presence of a teacher and teaching assistant. Our sixth-form is expanding and oversubscribed and will teach 40 students from September 2015.

We have 46 well qualified, highly committed and special staff. Whilst we carry different job titles such as headteacher, site manager, school business manager, teaching assistant, we are all focused on one thing - creating an atmosphere that makes it as easy as possible for our students to make exceptional progress.

We also work collaboratively with partner schools throughout the county and with partner agencies such as the NHS in order to deliver the therapeutic element of our provision.

Curriculum

Whilst our curriculum looks exactly like that of a mainstream school it is merely a tool by which we develop the independence and life skills that the parents of our students tell us is so important to them.

Curriculum maps are available to download at the bottom of this page.

Admissions

Admission to the school is always coordinated by the local authority in which the child is resident in partnership with Surrey County Council. Students applying for a place in Year 7 or the Sixth-Form are admitted by an annual panel convened by the local authority. In-year admissions are coordinated by the local authority in discussion with the school.
