Wey Valley College (WVC) is a 5 – 16 Alternative Provision 'AP' school set over a single campus in Guildford, Surrey. The school is based on a single site, with a Primary school area for 12 students at KS1 and 2, and a secondary area for 32 students at KS3 and KS4.

Our aim is to reduce the numbers of pupils who are permanently excluded from school by offering mainstream schools an alternative to exclusion. We work closely with our Mainstream School partners to support early intervention so as to avoid permanent exclusion through a range of interventions so pupils can be supported, either within their mainstream school or at the college.

WVC became part of the Inclusive Education Trust (IET) which formed in September 2021 and works alongside Reigate Valley College (Reigate) and the Fordway Centre (Ashford Mdx). So whilst you get the benefits of working within a small and supportive setting, by working so closely with our other PRU’s we also provide you with a wide network of support, excellent opportunities for continued professional development and diverse opportunities for career progression.

Our mission statement is “Achieving New Beginnings Together”.
