We are an outstanding secondary special school for students with learning and additional needs (LAN).

Every student matters at The Abbey and every decision we take is based on what is in the best interests of the individual. Our staff are our greatest asset and we are extremely proud of our whole school ethos.
Over the next 2 years The Abbey will be undergoing significant investment as we expand from a 2 to 3 form entry school to support Surrey County Council’s SEND Sufficiency Strategy 2020 – 2025. This will provide us with a range of brand-new facilities including 9 classrooms (5 subject specialist for Art, DT, Science, Performing Arts and Catering), a learning resource unit, sports hall and suite of therapy rooms.
We are looking for an experienced specialist art teacher to join our team to lead and coordinate art across key stages 3 and 4. The position would also include a form tutor role.
