Wey Valley College (WVC) is a 5 – 16 Pupil Referral Unit (PRU), (also known as a short stay school) set over a single campus in Guildford, Surrey. The school is based on a single site, with a Primary school area for 12 students at KS1 and 2, and a secondary area for 32 students at KS3 and KS4.

Our aim is to reduce the numbers of pupils who are permanently excluded from school by offering mainstream schools an alternative to exclusion. We work closely with our Mainstream School partners to support early intervention so as to avoid permanent exclusion through a range of interventions so pupils can be supported, either within their mainstream school or at the college.

WVC became part of the Inclusive Education Trust (IET) which formed in September 2021 and works alongside Reigate Valley College (Reigate) and the Fordway Centre (Ashford Mdx). So whilst you get the benefits of working within a small and supportive setting, by working so closely with our other PRU’s we also provide you with a wide network of support, excellent opportunities for continued professional development and diverse opportunities for career progression.

Our mission statement is “Achieving New Beginnings Together”.

About Us

Wey Valley College is a progressive, innovative short stay school, catering for the needs of students who have difficulty accessing a mainstream curriculum.

The College site is located in close proximity to the town of Guildford, surrounded by the beautiful Surrey countryside, yet accessible by road (A3) and rail.

We aim to provide high quality education for all our pupils. Pupils are offered a broad and balanced curriculum. Their attainment is assessed regularly, in order to monitor their progress in both curriculum and behaviour, and specific learning and behaviour targets are set. Pupils are encouraged to access the curriculum, to be independent and to learn strategies to control their own behaviour.

We have an excellent record of providing good CPD and have a proven record of supporting staff developing them from unqualified teachers through to the completion of their NQT year. We have supported many staff in their career progression either within the trust or with partner mainstream schools.

Wey Valley College has very good progress measures and all students make good progress academically and pastorally. At KS4 achievement is in line or above national data for PRUs. The percentage of students gaining 5 Grade 9-1 was 80% compared to 12.3% nationally, 1 grade 9-4 was 100% compared to 20.3% and 1 A*-G was 100% compared to 57.7% in 2020/21.

Our learning environment is good and whilst there are needs for improvements in certain areas, compared to PRUs nationally our accommodation and environment is well above average

We were last inspected by Ofsted in September 2018 and were judged as ‘Outstanding’ in all areas.
