The schools culture is one of kindness, respect and inclusion . Pupils are firmly at the centre of all that the school does. Their safety and well being are paramount in the school's work.
Staff combine high expectations with great skill, care, patience and warm good humour. The strength of relationships created between staff and pupils is a key element in helping pupils to feel settled and secure. Pupils excellent behaviour reflects the school's success in helping them to rediscover an interest in learning and the motivation to succeed.

Trauma Informed School's UK September 2023
"Surrey Teaching Centre provides a warm, caring, and safe environment for vulnerable children and young people with acquired brain injury. Staff at the school welcome these young people with open hearts and genuine delight. This enables them to build strong, trusting positive relationships quickly which in turn helps children get to know themselves and to learn to value themselves. The staff at this school set no limits on what they can achieve for these children. Their core values of growth, respect and curiosity are evident in their interactions with each other, the children and in their curriculum design and delivery."
"Teaching staff expertly help pupils to recall past learning. Both staff and pupils are very determined, and ambitions are high. Pupils work hard in their lessons, as do their dedicated teachers."
"Pupils make excellent progress academically, socially and in their behaviour. Staff possess a deep understanding of the implications of an acquired brain injury on pupils' prior knowledge, understanding and memory. Teachers set work for pupils that is far from easy. Pupils gain hugely from a rich experience of using the senses to support their recovery, combined with fresh and inspiring challenges."
