The Children's Trust Charity

who are we?

The Children's Trust is the UK's leading charity for children with brain injury.
We work with children and young people from across the UK, both from our specialist centre in Tadworth, Surrey and in communities around the country.

Our vision is for all children with brain injury to have the opportunity to live the best life possible.

Our mission
For children with brain injury and their families, we aim:

  • to be an internationally-recognised centre of excellence for care, rehabilitation, education and research
  • to reach out to children and families in their own community
  • to provide expert advice, training and information
  • to make our voice heard.
Every year over 40,000 children in the UK are left with a brain injury as a result of an accident or illness (figure drawn from NHS England). This is known as acquired brain injury.
Many children make a good recovery, but thousands have to live with ongoing, long-term difficulties. Some children are left with severe physical difficulties or learning difficulties. Some children experience more subtle, 'hidden' difficulties which nevertheless have a big impact on their lives.
Our rehabilitation, community and online services are there to support all children with acquired brain injury and their families.
Thousands more children are born with brain injuries or develop severe disabilities as a result of a degenerative conditions. Our medical services and special school give children with the most complex disabilities and health needs the chance to live their lives to the full.

About the Children's Trust School

A welcome & introduction

Welcome to The Children's Trust School career site

The Children's Trust School is a purpose built, residential non-maintained school for children aged three upwards with profound and multiple learning difficulties (PMLD) and complex medical needs.

The School is located at The Children's Trust's national specialist centre in Tadworth, Surrey and is one of the only special schools in the UK that provides education, therapy and care exclusively for children and young people with profound and multiple learning difficulties and complex health needs.
Our School welcomes pupils aged from three upwards and provides a safe, caring, organised and happy environment where their individual needs can be met. In partnership with parents, we enrich each pupil's' quality of life by promoting their intellectual, physical, emotional and social development.
We have over 30 residential pupils as well as a number of day places, where we offer age-appropriate education and activities, from dedicated early years classes for the youngest children, to further education-style classes for older teenagers.
