It was founded in 1725 and is now on an attractive 12 acre site situated on the outskirts of Chertsey, a two minute walk from the railway station and very near to the junction of the M3 and M25.

The School has excellent facilities, having benefited from an extensive and ongoing building and refurbishment programme including a new staff room and kitchen and refurbished staff work room in autumn 2017. New Sixth Form centre, Drama Studio and Careers centre which opened in summer 2016.

Why work at Sir William Perkins’s School?

The staff are thoroughly professional, highly qualified and knowledgeable, enthusiastic and passionate about their own subjects, as well as understanding the importance of the breadth of the educational experience that we provide.

The school is characterised by a warm and welcoming atmosphere and mutually supportive approach. Expectations of staff are high but equally, personal workloads are carefully considered by the Senior Leadership Team. There are plenty of opportunities for further appropriate professional development and a generous inset budget. All staff are equally valued for their part in the overall success of the school and there is a strong sense of fun and humour.

The governors are keen to ensure that staff remuneration is competitive and are continually reviewing the package to ensure that SWPS can attract and retain outstanding teachers.
