Reigate Grammar School, through a bespoke leadership, academic and pastoral model, is recognised as the premier HMC co-educational independent day school in the UK and the first of its kind to be awarded ‘Exceptional’ by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) in 2016. It was awarded the UK Independent School of the Year for Pastoral Care and Wellbeing in 2019 and awarded the status of HPL World Class School. In 2020, RGS was awarded Tatler UK Independent School of the Year.
Reigate Grammar School was founded in 1675, from a legacy gift bequeathed by Henry Smith, an Alderman of the City of London, for the relief of the poor through education. Today, it continues with Henry Smith’s vision of providing opportunities to children from all backgrounds. Reigate Grammar School is extremely proud of its long history and ethos – it has been changing lives since 1675.
Reigate Grammar School (RGS) provides a world-class education for children from ages 2-18. With over 1,000 pupils in the upper school it also has two junior schools: Reigate St Mary’s (with 350 pupils aged 2-11) was awarded ‘excellent’ in every category in their 2019 ISI Inspection Report; whilst Chinthurst (with 300 pupils aged 2-11) has recently been shortlisted for UK Independent Prep School of the Year. The strength of the RGS brand; its leadership and staff; its location and strong academic performance makes it a very attractive destination for prospective parents. Due to its leadership, performance and reputation, the demand for entry is extremely high.
