The Howard Partnership Trust

Betchwood Vale Academy


The Howard Partnership Trust (THPT) are working closely with the Department for Education and their chosen contractors, Bowmer + Kirkland, on an exciting new school development at a proposed site in Dorking, subject to planning permission.

Betchwood Vale Academy will help support the overwhelming need for SEND places in Surrey, by offering a co-educational all-through SEND school designed for up to 180 learners aged 7-19 years, which will support young people with Communication and Interaction Needs (COIN), and Autism Spectrum Conditions (ASC) predominantly High Functioning Autism (HFA).

The development of Betchwood Vale Academy will embrace THPT’s vision, values and ethos in ‘bringing out the best’ in our young people of all abilities and backgrounds so increasing their life-chances in a successful transition into independent adulthood.
