Welcome From The Principal

A good education should last a lifetime. From the moment you walk through the doors at Surbiton High School, you can feel the energy, excitement and passion for learning, together with a willingness to embrace new challenges.

We know that choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make. Just like you, we believe the happiness and success of your child are key foundations upon which their future is built. That is why we are a school which genuinely delights in the individual. We are a place where every child is valued, every child is encouraged to give their very best, and every child has the chance to grow in confidence by participating in a wide range of inspirational learning experiences.

Our approach to education means that Surbiton High School pupils achieve the highest results in external examinations, yet are also compassionate, authentic young people with strong values; keen to make a positive difference in an ever-changing world. We are committed to looking beyond A*s to offer a real breadth of education. We feed our pupils’ minds, but we also care passionately about their character development and happiness.

Staff within the School are inspirational; dedicated to delivering a rich curriculum and programme of activities which challenge your child to explore ideas for themselves. Whether engaged in learning in the classroom, or through musical, artistic, sporting, enterprise or charitable activities, Surbiton High School pupils are constantly encouraged to connect with the wider world, embracing new experiences to build their confidence - a confidence built not on arrogance, but on self-belief and a ‘can do’ attitude.

It is a pleasure and privilege to be part of this exceptional school community where, on a daily basis, the pupils’ good humour, enthusiasm and curiosity never fails to impress. If you are seeking an empowering school with real heart and soul, which offers an intellectually rigorous and challenging academic environment for your child, then the best way to experience what Surbiton High School has to offer is to visit us.

A warm welcome awaits you at one of our Open Mornings
