Surveyors Creek Public School is part of the Glenmore Park Learning Alliance (GPLA). This alliance of schools includes Glenmore Park High School, Glenmore Park Public School, Regentville Public School, Leonay Public School, Warragamba Public School, Emu Plains and Emu Heights Public School. 

The learning alliance has developed partnerships that have, as its foundation, a belief that all students can learn and grow in confidence. In 2013 and 2014, teachers in the GPLA worked collaboratively to implement the Australian English and Maths Curriculum. They developed committees, participated in combined professional development days and wrote units to implement across the Learning Alliance. This also led to the development of the Glenmore Park Learning Alliance Website.
