A school with a rich history and a bright future
Gosden House is an outstanding school for young people with learning and additional needs, from 4-16 years of age. Set in extensive grounds, the environment offers students the opportunity to explore and challenge the potential of learners in every aspect. The curriculum has a strong focus on core learning skills and communication. We aim to develop resilience, creativity and social skills in order to support young people to succeed in the workplace and live rewarding, independent lives.
Learning is tailored to suit the needs of the individual and we work in partnership with families and other agencies to support learning and development for the 'whole child'. We have high expectations, and learners take pride in their achievements.
We firmly believe that children facing the toughest challenges every day deserve the best chance to improve their life outcomes. Our children are lively and enthusiastic about every opportunity they are offered and this excitement empowers them to try new things and to engage with learning. We were delighted to have received Ofsted Outstanding December 2019.
Gosden House is a warm and vibrant learning environment with a clear vision:
Growing lives, building futures.

GOSDEN HOUSE DIARY
From The High Sheriff of Surrey
I just wanted to let you know that this week the Robin class teachers have gone above and beyond to support for our daughter. They know she really enjoys writing and her numbers. So they do the set tasks with all the children but have kindly added some extras to push her a bit more. The teacher had even called a couple of times to have a chat to me about how I can help our daughter with these extras. By them doing this she has enjoyed her learning and is thriving with the learning at home. Myself and my husband are very grateful to the staff for being so amazing and we can’t thank you all enough.
From a parent
Hi, thank you for all your hard work. and, you understand our children need face to face and practical work. As always Gosden is brilliant. We have loved our first week of homeschool. Having the regular Teams sessions keeps us to a much needed routine and we like keeping busy with tasks. Also loving the TA reading sessions.
