School Description

Knowl Hill School is an independent day special school for pupils with specific learning difficulties, principally dyslexia. Pupils may also have social and communication needs, dyspraxia, attention deficit disorders or autistic spectrum disorder. Although the school is in Surrey, pupils come from approximately ten different local authorities. The school is split into a senior school and junior school. The senior school is for pupils in Years 8, 9, 10 and 11 and the junior school for pupils in Years 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7. The head of the junior school is also the SENCo for younger pupils. The headteacher is Inspection report: Knowl Hill School, 7–9 November 2017 Page 9 of 12 the SENCo for the senior school. The school was founded in 1984 and accepts up to 65 pupils aged from seven to 16 years. There are currently 47 pupils on roll. Of these, 43 pupils have an education, health and care plan or statement of special educational needs. The school aims for each pupil to: ‘become a confident resilient learner; reach their academic potential; leave prepared for adulthood, both emotionally and practically; believe that there is no limit to what they can achieve in life’. An additional inspection was conducted at the school on 28 September 2016. Since the last full standard independent inspection, a new headteacher has been appointed.
