Reigate Grammar School
Reigate Grammar School is an independent day school for boys and girls aged 11 to 18 in Reigate, Surrey. It was founded in 1675 and re-formed as a grammar school in 1862.
It is part of a foundation with Reigate St Mary's Preparatory and Choir School and Chinthurst School, with the three schools educating around 1,500 pupils from 3 through to 18.
Headmaster Shaun Fenton says: 'Sometimes people ask what ‘type’ of child makes a successful Reigatian. There are all sorts of Reigatians, but no stereotypes. Students are actively encouraged to pursue their own interests, whether intellectual, social, spiritual or physical, within and beyond the curriculum. We don’t start with ‘types’, we only focus on knowing your child and all the children in our care. They will be supported through the challenges of teenage years, just as much as they will progress triumphantly through the successes of life over seven years at RGS.'

Attain asked the school, what makes Reigate Grammar School different – and why should parents consider it?
Our commitment to every family is that we will help your child reach their full potential by appreciating and developing their unique blend of talents, skills, aspirations and abilities.
Students will flourish in our care, their self-esteem will grow and they will become a success story for themselves, their family and school. We will not forget that, behind their confident smile, they are still your daughter or son and will need our support and dedication each day.
