Welcome from the Headteacher


Welcome to North West Surrey Short Stay School

'Success is an Attitude'


We are a Pupil Referral Unit serving Woking, Runnymede and Surrey Heath for learners, aged 11-16, who have experienced difficultly in maintaining a place in mainstream education.


Our team of highly professional and dedicated staff work in partnership with parents, partner schools, the LA, the Management Committee and health agencies in order to support each student to achieve their full potential.


We provide a range of programmes that are tailored to meet the needs of each individual student, which involves a variety extra-curricular and enrichment activities that the students thoroughly enjoy and take part in. These include gardening, cob oven cooking, volunteer work at the church, sports activities, attending outdoor education centres, end of term trips to places students would not normally visit and a variety of work experience placements. All of this is in addition to core subjects (at KS3) of Maths, English, Art, PSHE, cooking and PE.  At KS4, the students study for GCSE Maths, English, Science and Art with additional lessons in PE, cooking and PSHE. In addition to this the student's have the opportunity to study Functional Skills English and Maths.


At NWSSSS, we enable the students to understand their barriers to learning and assist them to reintegrate back into a suitable education setting or prepare for a successful transition to life post 16.


Please do contact us if you would like to know more about our work or visit the school.
