The Raleigh School is a popular two-form entry co-educational primary academy in the semi-rural village of West Horsley, near Guildford. It is an attractive site containing a separate Wing for Reception and Year 1 and another separate wing, The Falcon Wing, for two older junior classes. We are an inclusive school and take children from 4 to 11, although we are fortunate to have a privately run Nursery on site that admits children from the age of 2 1/2. The vast majority of children move on at age 11, to the Howard of Effingham School, an outstanding academy that operates as the hub for our group of 10 schools making up the Effingham Learning Partnership, a thriving collaborative network for teaching and learning.
The accommodation includes a library, a music room, a full IT suite, two children's kitchens and various breakout rooms for small groups and music lessons. There is a large assembly hall, a pond, a tiered decking stage area, a playground with many line markings chosen by the children, a bouldering wall and a large all weather adventure playground. We have two teaching fields; one on site and another a short walk away.
