Headteacher's Welcome

I am privileged to have opened this wonderful new school providing a unique service for young people, with an EHCP who are not in formal schooling, to help them re-engage with learning, life and beyond. Our mission is to help young people with SEN to find self-agency, increase their life chances and thrive, as individuals and within their communities.


Everything we do is underpinned by our values of Wellbeing, Connection and Empowerment. When young people join us, we always take time to understand them and work closely with the family to ensure the young person transitions successfully into our school. Most have been through some challenging educational experiences and we employ trauma-informed strategies as part of our therapeutic approach alongside a high-quality project-based and wellbeing curriculum to help them heal, recalibrate their mindset and build resilience.


Each one of our students are a success story, in their own right. We boost and leverage their strengths to help them realise what they are truly made of, leading to academic and personal growth. We hope this website provides you with an insight into what we are about. We welcome visitors and hold regular open days, so please do get in touch if you would like any further information.


Best wishes,


Nazya Ghalib

About Our School

Set in beautiful private grounds, surrounded by the Surrey Hills, Pathways Education offers a unique, safe and calm environment for young people aged 9 - 16, with special educational needs, who are at risk of NEET (Not in Education, Employment and Training). 


We are fully inclusive, and our aim is that all our students achieve their potential; personally, socially, emotionally, and academically in all areas of the curriculum. This is underpinned by our school vision and values which are modelled by the whole school community. We are ambitious for our young people and our approach will enable pupils to thrive and achieve holistically.


Wellbeing, Connection and Empowerment, are the values that guide our whole community and form the foundation of our school culture. Our values inform our approach to learning and its content, with wellbeing and student re-engagement in learning at the heart of what we do.


Our curriculum is designed to provide opportunities that may not have previously existed, ensuring our students are ready to flourish and be ready for the next part of their journey. We offer Project Based Learning alongside the core subjects of Maths, English, Science and PSHE in KS2 and KS3. As students move into KS4 they can work towards accreditation where appropriate. Our curriculum is underpinned by the six key skills for 21st Century Living (Communication, Citizenship, Creativity, Collaboration, Character, and Critical Thinking) with a strong focus on Positive Psychology.


Through our outreach work, students have regular access to a range of learning and employment opportunities within the local area, where careers learning is contextualised. The school has the provision of a music studio, equine facilities, The Bike Hub, The Cookie Bar, and the Cookie Bus (a mobile version of the coffee shop).
