Whilst Surrey boasts some outstanding schools, there are quite a few that are in need of making some changes. Ofsted is a government body that measures the performances of educational establishments and it publishes its findings online in the form of a report.

On the four-point grading scale, "outstanding" is the best that a school can achieve and "inadequate" is the worst. Schools ranked as "requires improvement" are grade three on the scale and given advice on how best to improve so that they can make their way up to "good".

Schools that "require improvement" usually receive another graded inspection within a 30-month period. As of January 2023, there are 21 schools in Surrey that require improvement in towns that include Woking , Guildford , Reigate , and Epsom .

Ofsted says that pupils included in the 2021/2022 school and college performance measures would have experienced a lot of disruption due to the Covid 19 pandemic . Several changes were also made to exams and grading during this time.

This means that any reports published within this time period should be understood within this context. Below are all of the schools in Surrey that require improvement according to their latest Ofsted ratings, and when they were inspected.
