The school is part of SESSET (South East Surrey Schools Education Trust) which is made up of ourselves, Therfield School in Leatherhead and The Ashcombe School in Dorking.  Mr David Blow is the CEO of this Multi Academy Trust. It is a partnership built on a mutual respect for each other. Within the Trust each school remains autonomous in many decisions made, and in their own vision. 

Carrington School has 7 forms of entry and a PAN of 210 in each year group.  We serve the local community with students feeding in from local primary schools in the area of Redhill, Merstham, Reigate and Horley.   We have a fully comprehensive intake; each year group includes a number of students with Education and Health Care Plans and others capable of achieving the highest grades across the curriculum at Key Stage 4. The Senior Leadership Team includes the Headteacher, two Senior Deputy Headteachers, one Deputy Headteacher, three Assistant Headteachers and a team of senior middle leaders who have responsibility for key curriculum areas.  

We have good relationships with our neighbouring secondary schools and are a partner school with the two nearby 16-19 colleges; Reigate College and East Surrey College.   

Our staff are a team of professionals who dedicate their lives to providing students with a high quality education. Our students want to learn, however under the new progress measures we are not always ensuring that every child makes expected progress and this underpins current the work we are undertaking with some urgency.  There is a desire from our students to be involved in active lessons with opportunities to be creative and engage in meaningful discussions. We are aiming to strive for excellence in all the work that we do and to be the number one choice for parents in our community. 

We know how important provision of career opportunities is and will be expecting staff to be ambitious in their own development; our commitment to staff is to encourage attendance at recognised conferences, to study for an MA or other recognised leadership qualification, to collaborate with schools in the local area and the MAT and to engage with research around teaching and learning. 

We are looking for people who can work as a team but who can also work independently and are confident to take the initiative when required; people who are driven, prepared to take risks, not afraid to challenge or be challenged and who are personable and flexible.  In short, we want people who have a passion for improving life chances for students.   

We are keen to speak with you further should you be interested in a position within our school.

Please do feel free to come and visit us if you want to really get an understanding of the work we do.

You are welcome at any time, please contact the HR Officer Mrs Karen Ehren on 01737 764356 ext. 208,  or email her on kehren@carringtonschool.org.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. Those appointed will have DBS checks and be expected to share this commitment.

Schools Direct, teacher training programme

We are a partner school with the Surrey Downs Partnership.

The Partnership was created in 2012 as The Warwick Partnership, named after The Warwick School in Redhill (now Carrington School). From September 2019, it changed its name to "Surrey Downs Partnership" to better embrace the wider inclusion of member schools and colleges, keeping the same founding ethos.

School Direct is a programme whereby trainees apply directly to the school of their choice and, if successful, train and work within their partnership schools. Schools, therefore, have more control over the quality of training which is provided, and how it is delivered.

You can contact Miss Rachel Ind, our Schools Direct Lead, for more information rind@carringtonschool.org.
