Welcome to Reigate School.  It gives us great pleasure to introduce the school to you on behalf of both the governors and the staff.

At Reigate School we have high expectations of our students and strive to ensure that every child achieves academically, socially and personally. We will provide your child with a balanced curriculum, a happy, stimulating environment and opportunities in abundance.

Children joining us will be individually supported to help them develop into confident young adults with a set of skills and abilities that enable them to make lasting friendships, appreciate diversity in others and ably compete in a global education system or work environment.

At Reigate School our commitment to 'helping students achieve their academic, social, and personal potential' lies at the core of all that we do. How we go about achieving this primary target on a day-to-day basis is outlined below:


In terms of helping students to realise their academic potential the school will:

• engender a culture in which staff, students and parents have high expectations of academic achievement
• continue to improve students’ performance in external examinations
• continue to improve departmental pass rates
• provide an appropriate range of curricular opportunities for all students
• promote a range of teaching and learning styles
• promote autonomous use of information communications technology
• monitor and report on individual progress to parents on a regular basis.


• In terms of helping students to realise their personal potential the school will:
