AboutUs

Collingwood College is Surrey Heath’s first high-performing Academy.  Collingwood is one of Surrey’s largest and most successful secondary schools for students aged 11-19.  We have more than 1850 students, including a Sixth Form of well over 300 and 270 teaching and support staff, all of whom are dedicated to ensuring that all our students fulfil their potential and enjoy to the full their secondary education. As a comprehensive school specialising in Technology and Applied Learning, we welcome students of all abilities. The College offers an outstanding range of educational and extra-curricular opportunities, which few other schools can match.

 The website provides you with an insight into the many benefits and advantages that a Collingwood education offers. Technology specialism means that at Collingwood every subject area uses technology to enhance student learning within their curriculum and particularly the STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).  Students complete an industry-standard IT qualification by the end of Year 10. 

Our wide range of alternative qualifications reflects our second specialism in Applied Learning. The College’s very successful OFSTED inspection in May 2013 confirmed it to be a good school with outstanding leadership and management.  Collingwood’s breadth of curriculum and the quality of the Sixth Form received particular praise.  Academic performance at GCSE and A Level is impressive.  Our relentless focus on English and Maths ensures results at GCSE are consistently high.  Able students are stretched with, on average, 20% of the cohort achieving 5 or more A*/A grades each year.

The diverse talents of our students supported by committed and highly experienced staff are key factors in the success of the College.  All Collingwood students are offered a wide range of personal development and leadership opportunities within their curriculum.  The contribution of extra-curricular activities such as the College’s Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, the wide-ranging educational visits programme, which includes visits to our partner school in Shanghai, ski trips to Europe and the USA, student exchanges with France and Spain and, in August 2015, a one month international expedition to Tanzania is significant. We have a thriving Sixth Form based in a purpose-built teaching centre.  The majority of our students progress into our Sixth Form and from there into higher education.  We offer extensive academic and vocational programmes of study.

Co-Principals' Welcome

Our vision for Collingwood is to be the College of first choice for all our parents and we are currently on a journey to move from Ofsted Good to Outstanding!

Collingwood College is committed to developing responsible, aspirational, independent, happy and well-rounded young people with the self-belief to reach their goals.

Our students are the focus of everything we do.  We have found that by listening to students’ views and offering them the opportunity to work with each other, staff and governors, they are an integral part of our relentless drive for improvement.

Collingwood College offers all students an inclusive, flexible and stimulating educational experience.  With a strong emphasis on personal development and a very wide range of leadership opportunities we are able to offer challenges that motivate and appeal to all individuals.

Our academic performance is consistently high and in 2015 students achieved record results at GCSE.  In 2015, 72.5% of students achieved 5 or more good passes at GCSE including English and Maths which is an increase of 6% on 2014.  At A level 53% of grades were at A*/B.  This continued level of success is down to the hard work of our students and their teachers.  Our outstanding team of Department Heads work alongside a dedicated pastoral team, to ensure that students are fully supported and prepared for the next stage in their education and employment.  There are so many reasons why we are proud to lead Collingwood forward!  Contact us to arrange a visit so that we can show you why!

Living and Working in Surrey

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.

Booming economy
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.

Environmental issues
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.

 

Travel
Surrey has good road and rail links to London, Gatwick and Heathrow airports.
