ENTRY INTO OTHER YEAR GROUPS – OCCASIONAL PLACES

Owing to a small number of families relocating, we occasionally have spaces that become available in other year groups. Please contact the Admissions Department to ascertain the availability in the relevant year group before applying  – admissions@surbitonhigh.com. Candidates applying outside of standard entry points are required to sit an age-appropriate assessment.

My daughter has flourished at the School. Sending my children to Surbiton High School has been a worthwhile investment in their education and personal development.
