What The Good Schools Guide says
Since September 2015, Clemmie Stewart BA English literature and education (30s). Educated at Bedales and Winchester University, she has taught in both the independent and state sectors. Her teaching career started at Farleigh Prep, followed by several years at Talavera Junior School in Aldershot. In 2014 she joined Surbiton High as director of teaching and learning and was appointed headteacher the following year, after proving herself to be an outstanding English teacher.

She is always smiling, say her charges, which makes us feel happy. Talented all-rounder herself, Miss Stewart was a music scholar at Bedales and a horsewoman with success in the show jumping...
Special Education Needs
A baseline assessment is undertaken when the girls join the school in Reception. This is followed by an end of Reception assessment. Children are also screened in Year 1 and Year 2 for dyslexic type problems. If a child is causing concern at any point, then individual assessments are also carried out. When necessary, a child might also be referred to an Educational Psychologist. If Learning Support is given to a pupil, as a result of assessments, then this is usually in the form of weekly 1:1 lessons or sometimes small group lessons. The School ethos is one of embracing a pupil's individuality, helping her to grow in self-confidence and self-worth. Those pupils with specific learning difficulties are no exception and are supported in a caring and practical way.
