Philip Southcote School is a progressive and inclusive values-based establishment.  This is a very exciting time for us as our school is expanding not only on our main school site, but two new Satellite Centres which launched in September 2021.


The vision for our Southcote Centres is to offer SEND pupils a combination of specialist teaching, therapies and interventions from the Philip Southcote team alongside opportunities for pupils to thrive in mainstream classes where this is beneficial and appropriate for them.


This is a new joint venture for Philip Southcote School and Kings International School, Camberley and one which has been described as “transformational” and “ground-breaking” by Surrey County Council.
