About the School

The Children’s Trust School is a non-maintained special school supporting children and young people aged 2-19 with a wide range of special needs including complex education, health, therapy and care requirements.

Based in leafy Tadworth in Surrey, just off of junction 8 of the M25, we are a regional school admitting children from a wide catchment.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website, we hope it is a useful introduction to our wonderful School and co-located residential care.

Our education, health, therapy and care teams work collaboratively with high ambition, strong commitment and a shared value base.

Together, we have a ‘whole system response’ to deliver high quality support for children with special educational needs, placing their quality of life at the centre of what we do.

By working in partnership with parents and carers, we promote each child’s intellectual, physical, emotional and social development, both during the school day and beyond. We deliver a personalised curriculum in an integrated, holistic and age-respectful way to support each child to achieve their full potential in meaningful ways.

The intent of our curriculum is to teach each child to acquire skills in communication and to learn sense of agency i.e. control over their actions.

We have a range of specialist facilities and plan enrichment activities that respond to individual needs and preferences.

We are immensely proud to lead and work with a team of people who have a wealth of experience and who embrace and share the School’s ethos, and aims and objectives of our residential accommodation. We provide a safe, caring, organised and happy environment in which the needs of all the children we support can be met.

If you would like to visit and enjoy a tour of our school, associated residential accommodation and on-site facilities, please do get in touch. Members of our team will be delighted to show you around.
