Unified Academy is the new name for Chart Wood School.

We moved to a new site in Dorking on 1 September.

The new building is a great learning environment with lots of excellent facilities for students to enjoy.

We look forward to sharing news and celebrating students’ achievements with you.

Safeguarding

Unified Academy (formerly Chart Wood School) is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We ensure that consistent and effective safeguarding procedures and policies are in place to support students and staff at school and follow the guidance of Keeping Children Safe in Education September 2020. If a student or parent has a concern they should contact the school immediately.
