ENTRY INTO OTHER YEAR GROUPS – OCCASIONAL PLACES

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.
