About us

Grafham Grange School is a special school set in 42 acres of beautiful Surrey countryside in Grafham. Our school offers education for up to 70 students, referred from local authorities across the South of England.

All our students have Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCPs) with SEMH (Social, Emotional and Mental Health) as their primary identified need, though the majority of students have additional special educational needs such as speech, language and communication difficulties; ADHD; opposition defiance and attachment disorders.

Our school is part of Orchard Hill College Academy Trust (OHCAT) and as such we collaborate across the Trust to share good practice, information and resources. This collaborative working allows us to better support our students and families through well-established multi-agency working practices. Staff at Grafham Grange work as a team to address the educational, social and therapeutic needs of our students in a cohesive and multi-disciplinary manner to ensure that high quality care and guidance is given to support all our students.

At the very heart of Grafham Grange School is the desire to deliver to our students an education that is equal to that received by their mainstream peers along with the very best professional support to allow them to overcome their individual barriers to learning and to find the skills and talents that evidently lie within them. We have a bespoke approach to each student so ensuring that they are able to grow as self-confident individuals able to confidently take their next steps in their lives after their time with us.

Grafham is ideally situated, geographically, developmentally and strategically to become a leading SEMH Hub within and across the South East. We are a highly motivated, hardworking school, totally committed to providing life chances and opportunities for our young people in a caring, stable and safe environment.
