  • The Great Eco Clear Up! - 13th September 2021

    What a difference! Yesterday, a group of volunteers including parents, students, governors, staff and the wonderful Redhill & Reigate Conservation team, removed many fallen willows from our Eco Area pond and cleared the brook of debris so lots of new-found light can make it's way through and we are ready for exciting nature activities such as Pond Dipping! We could not do this without the heavy-duty equipment that the Conservation team bring, as well as their energy and expertise. Huge thanks to everyone who took part!

  • Uniform Up-Date - 18th August 2021

    We're delighted to present to you the full new Carrington Skirt Uniform and Trouser Uniform. We think this is a distinctive and very smart look! This is for our incoming Year 7 students, and any Year 8 & 9 students who no longer fit into their Warwick uniforms. Unfortunately, but not surprisingly if you’ve been following the news, there are some considerable delays to our uniform supplies due to a range of shipping and logistic factors that are way beyond control. There is an extract from the letter from the manufacturer, Banner, below, that provides more detail about the difficulties they are experiencing.

  • Goodbye The Warwick! - 9th August 2021

    On 1 September 2021 we officially become Carrington School, completing a period of transformation that began in the autumn of 2018 when we first got approval for the Priority Build Project to replace the main school building.

    Since then, we have appointed a new Headteacher, moved out of the old main building into the amazing new building, discovered the legacy of Richard Carrington and chosen our new name in honour of his astronomical work, chosen a new uniform, defined our new values and decided on a new logo to represent our vision for the future.

  • New Building Names - 2nd August 2021

    We return in September to newly named buildings (previously South Block, North Block and East Block) as shown in the diagram below. Each building is named for a star in the Summer Triangle, to complement the astronomical foundations of our new school name, as Richard Carrington was an esteemed Astronomer who made a number of important discoveries from his Observatory right here in Redhill in the late 1800s. Altair is the brightest star in the Aquila constellation Deneb is the brightest star in the Cygnus constellation Vega is the brightest star in the Lyra constellation We are extremely proud to have been part of The Priority Schools Building Programme. Our amazing project is almost finished now with just the demolition and landscaping phase to complete over the next few months.
