Surrey Division was formed in 1903 as the Surrey County Teachers`Association of the National Union of Teachers. It was formed to represent the local Associations in Surrey to negotiate with the newly-formed Surrey County Council.

The Division has a long and proud history numbering many distinguished educationalists among its officers most notably Sir Edward Britton, General Secretary of the NUT and Chuter Ede, the real author of the 1944 Education Act.

In 2006 the Local Associations decided to amalgamate under the banner of the Surrey Division which is now the Local Association for all teachers in Surrey. Although there are six Unions purporting to represent teachers, the Surrey Division NUT is by far the biggest with nearly 6000 members.

Officers of the Surrey Division are respected by the Authority and meet with them often to maintain and improve the working conditions of teachers in Surrey.
