School Learning Partnership Day 3rd June 2024

All members of staff at Serenity Schools Group recently came together for an Inservice Training Day (INSET). During this comprehensive session, we had the opportunity to engage in planning and training activities designed to help us reflect, enhance our educational practices, and better support our students.
We also benefited from a session by Trauma Informed Schools UK on Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE), equipping us with strategies to support students who have experienced trauma and how to ensure that this does not become a barrier to their learning.
The highlight of the day was hearing from some of our Year 13 pupils who have recently gained admission into university and who shared their experiences of being students at Serenity School. Their insights and personal stories provided valuable perspectives, reinforcing the positive impact of our collective efforts and our commitment to our core values of Inclusion, Independence, and Self-Worth for all members of our school community.

Children’s Mental Health Week

February 7th – February 13th, 2022 is Children’s Mental Health Week. The theme of this year’s Children’s Mental Health Week is Growing Together.

Growing Together is about growing emotionally and finding ways to help each other grow. Challenges and setbacks can help us to grow and adapt and trying new things can help us to move beyond our comfort zone into a new realm of possibility and potential. However, emotional growth is often a gradual process that happens over time, and sometimes we might feel a bit ‘stuck’.

As parents and carers, you play an important role in your child’s mental health. Check out some free resources for families on the link below.


We are very proud of all the Year 11 pupils for their determination, resilience, and wonderful teamwork over the past year(s). Throughout the two lockdowns, the young people at our school have continued to work hard, progress and attain. It has been amazing to see how they have embraced all the changes over the last year and yet still each one of them have been highly successful.

All Year 11s have graduated with 5 or more qualifications including English and math and now begin the transition to either our 6th form or a college of their choice. We look forward to seeing how they progress and develop through to work and adulthood in the years to come.

It is also hard to say goodbye to our little school site at Croydon, that has served us all very well over the past years and was like a big family home away from home for the pupils and staff. It is a central aim of Serenity School to embrace a culture at school of family, based on inclusion and equality, independence, and self-worth. As we prepare for the move to our new school campus at Rowans Hill, Chipstead, Couldson, we will as ever work hard to ensure we keep the nurture feel of the small school setting at Croydon yet with greater space and facilities improve our curriculum further and challenge our pupils to even greater heights.
As we plan for the move, we have also redesigned our curriculum to support wider participation of pupils in our school community. See our new prospectus for more detail. You might just recognise some of the young gentlemen! School perspective.
We also had an amazing summer term, so please check out the Summer Newsletter
Wishing you a relaxing and peaceful summer!

Quarantine Quests:

During this time we encourage the school community to do things that will help you to boost your well-being and mental health. We have enjoyed hearing stories about our pupils cooking and gardening as well as taking nature walks while at home. Learning takes many forms and for many of our boy practical learning is key. We encourage parents to not only complete work packs and guided learning shared by school but also play boardgames, go for long walks, cook new exciting meals, meditate or even learn a new craft like knitting!

We are really pleased to of been sent some beautiful photos taken by Ross in year nine. The pictures really brightened up our day! If you have any pictures that you would like to share with us showing us what the boys are getting up to during quarantine please email them to
