Academic excellence...

A happy atmosphere...
Key to Reigate Grammar Schools success is a happy atmosphere with students who obviously enjoy school life, combined with excellent academic standards, a busy sporting calendar and first class music and drama productions.Visitors regularly comment on the unique atmosphere at RGS which results from affirmative interaction between students and teachers.
Students are encouraged to make the most of the many opportunities open to them and to try out the extensive range of extra-curricular activities on offer. The school is one of the largest Duke of Edinburgh Awards Scheme centres in Surrey and has an active Combined Cadet Force. It is the quality of the extra-curricular offering that stands RGS apart.

RGS combines the best of a traditional Grammar School with the best in modern facilities and teaching methods.

The atmosphere of RGS is one of unity, acceptance and encouragement. I cant say a bad thing about Reigate Grammar.
Sixth Form Student

The atmosphere between pupils and staff is very positive; students are keen to please their teachers and the staff will always go the extra mile to help their pupils.

Students feel that they belong to the school community. They are proud of what they achieve and proud of the school.

They have the safety of feeing that theres a place for them here, no matter what their strengths or interests.

Ill miss the positive relationship between us and the teachers, the mutual respect and the mutual expectation to give it your best.
