FAQs From Open Days

Welcome to Powell Corderoy School

Our lively, friendly school is out on the edge of Dorking, bordering the beautiful Nower woodland.  We pride ourselves on offering children a diverse and exciting curriculum with plenty of opportunities to explore wide-ranging topics, nurture new skills, indulge interests or advance personal strengths. Have a look at our class pages to see what’s going on this year, or flick through the photo album to get a flavour of school life!

Children at Powell Corderoy are well-rounded, interesting people. They learn to get on with others, to be independent thinkers, to care and communicate, to appreciate and respect differences and to strive for personal goals.  They leave Powell with a sense of belonging and identity, and with the confidence that they will succeed in the next leg of their journey.

The Powell Corderoy community includes many committed parents and volunteers who run activities and events throughout the year. We have plenty of ways for parents to get involved in the school.  Whether it’s sharing views at our Parent Council, fundraising with our Friends of Powell Association or volunteering in classes… we work closely with families to achieve the best outcomes for our children.

We hope you will be able to come and see the great work going on in our little school – we are very proud of what we offer and can promise you will be made most welcome.

We follow Safer Recruitment guidelines for all staff appointments. An enhanced DBS vetting check is required for all staff prior to the start of employment, and is also required for regular volunteers in school.
