Knowl Hill School is a private school located in the village of Pirbright in Surrey, located on School Lane. Knowl Hill is a co-educational school offering teaching to pupils suffering from dyslexia or other similar learning disabilities. There are only a small number of pupils in the entire school, for example in 1998 there were 46 pupils attending. Following the expansion of the school building, there are now around 63 students. A key part of the school's ethos is the emphasis on small class sizes with classes typically consisting of around 8 pupils, allowing greater interaction between pupils and teachers, as well as catering for the specific needs of the pupil. Year groups are named for Greek letters (e.g. Omicron) which may vary depending on enrollment in a particular year.


Knowl Hill was founded in 1984. As well as standard classrooms, the school also provides science labs, computer labs as well as art and design technology rooms. The school itself is small, as are the grounds within which the school are located. Because of this, certain activities or sports take place outside of school, such as tennis which takes place on public tennis courts within the village of Pirbright itself around a five-minute walk from the school.

Later years

Many of the pupils leave at the end of year 5 or year 6 and go on to attend schooling in regular schools since in many cases by this age, pupils have caught up with the national education system and are able to cope with the full demands of the National Curriculum in an ordinary environment. However, for other students it is possible to sit GCSE exams while at the school.
