United Learning is one of the most established schools groups in the country.

With a history of running independent schools dating back over 130 years, United Learning now comprises 44 state academies and 13 independent schools across England. These include Guildford High School, Surbiton High School, Ashford School and Dunottar School.

As part of United Learning, pupils and staff have access to an impressive range of Group-wide activities, personal and professional development that no stand-alone school could offer. However, we do not believe that ‘one size fits all’ in any aspect of our work; each of our schools is unique in how it operates.

It is our aim to provide excellent education to all the children and young people we serve. Learning should be enjoyable; it should be challenging but fun, ambitious but specifically tailored to each pupil’s ability and aspirations.

As a group of schools working in partnership, there are clear, tangible benefits to children. Our focus on evidence, evaluation and the refinement of practice allows the Group’s support to be highly effective. We are a learning organisation which seeks constantly to improve, looking outwards to draw on the very best practice available, whilst also supporting the development of all colleagues.
