Weydon is an 11-16 mixed comprehensive Academy with Specialist Status in Science, NOR 1248, serving the southern part of Farnham and many of the local villages. The school enjoys a high reputation in the local area for its examination success and the breadth of educational opportunities it provides. In July 2009 the school gained an ‘outstanding’ grade from Ofsted and, within this judgement, 26 out of the 27 categories were also graded as outstanding. Students come to us from six main partner schools, with whom we work closely to ensure a smooth transition.
At 16, students move on to Farnham, Alton, Farnborough or Guildford Colleges. On entry to the school, students are placed in nine mixed-ability tutor groups of around 28 students. Students are placed in different pathways and this takes place progressively in more subjects as students move through the school. We believe in the personalised learning agenda: to equally support and challenge all students.
We believe in the personalised learning agenda: to equally support and challenge all students. We have a condensed Key Stage 3 for years 7 and 8. At Key Stage 4, students have the opportunity to take between 9-11 subjects to GCSE level. A number of students will also follow AS courses within the option system. Some students opt for a more flexible vocational package at Key Stage 4. Groups in Key Stage 4 within the core subjects are increased to 11 instead of 9 across the year, allowing small class sizes. We enhance the curriculum with a variety of activities and visits in all years. For those students who find the work more difficult we have a highly skilled Special Needs team who work closely with some students individually, in groups, in the classroom or in the new suite of rooms.

Surrey is a county of contrasts. Only a short journey from London, it also offers a quick escape into peaceful countryside. This pleasant environment is combined with transport links that include the M3, M23 and M25 motorways, road and rail to London, and easy access to Gatwick and Heathrow airports.
In spite of a population of just over a million in a comparatively small area of 650 square miles, 80% of the county is farmland, woods, heath and open land. Although Surrey is a wealthy county, there are areas of relative poverty, particularly around some of the larger towns and a number of schools have pupils with a wide diversity of nationalities, cultures and languages.
There have recently been several major town centre redevelopments in Surrey. In the field of education and research, centres include Royal Holloway University (London) at Egham and Surrey University at Guildford. New research related technologies are also represented at Surrey University's research park and many multinational companies continue to relocate from London to Surrey.
In Surrey there is a need to balance environmental conservation with the requirement for more homes, roads and commercial development.
For teachers in schools interested in green issues, Surrey County Council promotes environmental awareness with a wide range of initiatives to develop pupils' knowledge and experience.
Tourism and leisure
Surrey provides a wealth of contrasting leisure activities. Among the historic sites are Hampton Court Palace and Runnymede, as well as National Trust properties such as Clandon and Polesden Lacey. Other attractions include picturesque villages, gardens, such as Wisley, racecourses and river trips. Surrey also has seven major arts venues.
Sports centres are also plentiful, among them the Spectrum Centre in Guildford, probably the most exciting leisure complex in the UK. Other first-class facilities are available in Camberley, Egham, Lingfield and Oxted.
For cyclists and walkers there is an extensive network of footpaths, bridleways and cycle routes and Surrey also boasts high-quality shopping malls, particularly in Kingston, Guildford and Camberley.
The Visit Surrey tourism website gives comprehensive information about all these leisure activities.
Surrey has good road and rail links to London, Gatwick and Heathrow airports.
