Surbiton High School's Main Building

It was founded in 1884 by a group of Anglican clergymen who instituted the Church Schools Company.[1] Its objective was "to establish superior education for girls in accordance with the principles of the Church of England" wherever the need was felt.

It is the founding member school of the Church Schools Company, now the United Church Schools Trust.[2] It has seven sites in Surbiton: the Boys Preparatory School (over two sites Charles Burney House and Avenue Elmers), the Girls Preparatory School, Main Senior School, Surbiton Assembly Rooms, Mary Bennett House and the Sixth Form Centre, as well as sports grounds at Hinchley Wood and Oaken Lane.

The current principal of Surbiton High School is Rebecca Glover who took up post in January 2018. Surbiton High School takes female students from 4 years old to 18 years old, while the Boys' Preparatory School caters for 4 to 11 year olds.
