Chart Wood School will be moving to a new site in Dorking over the holiday period and will become Unified Academy from 1st September 2020. Unified Academy will remain part of Orchard Hill College Academy Trust.


Intent – our ambition for all our pupils

Intent of the curriculum is to enable the children and young adults who attend Chart Wood School to reach their highest potential by

  • Developing the STEM skills that provide a strong foundation for a life of learning
  • Becoming confident, well rounded young people with an understanding and tolerance of modern equality and diversity issues, a positive self-concept and tender masculinity
  • Developing personalised skills and strategies for maintaining good physical and Mental Health, inside and outside of school
  • Providing experiences, inside and outside of school, that give pupils the social, cultural and symbolic capital to achieve within wider society and their chosen field
  • Making pupils aware of the risks they face within their community and supporting them to develop coping mechanisms and support structures to mitigate these risks
  • Achieving the academic and vocational skills, knowledge and understanding they need to progress towards their individual next steps in further education, training or employment.

If you require additional information regarding our curriculum offer, please contact the school.

I would like to thank all the staff that have made my son feel welcome at your school. After last year at his old school we never thought we could help him feel happy and want to go to school…….now we are 100 % positive we made the right choice
