The Magna Carta School is an 11–16 academy school in Surrey, England, which has been awarded specialisms in Technology and ICT. It is named after the Magna Carta due to its proximity to Runnymede, where the document was signed. The school contains over 1200 pupils including over 60 prefects.

At an OfSTED inspection in July 2013 the school received an Inspection Grade of 2 (Good).[1]


The school was awarded Artsmark Gold status[2] in June 2010 and several student representatives attended an Arts Council England ceremony in Brighton.

The school became the first Apple RTC (Regional Training Centre) in Surrey in 2010; this included a new Apple suite with the introduction of high definition video conferencing for national/international interactive learning.
