Surrey Stars

Surrey Stars is a strategic programme, developed collaboratively with partner schools, to provide a progressive programme of in-school and on campus experiences for students in Years 7 to 11. Please click below to download our in school and on campus programme overviews.


This programme features targeted intervention focused on attainment, primarily for students in receipt of free school meals or eligible for pupil premium. We also invite participation amongst students who are care experienced or are from a Gypsy, Roma or Traveller community alongside an embedded aspiration curriculum for the whole school.
