The Curriculum

The curriculum focuses on personalised learning and individual progress.  The children embrace risk taking and making mistakes as a normal part of the learning process and this leads to outstanding confidence and academic outcomes. A comprehensive extra-curricular program ensures the children have a well-rounded school experience and are fully prepared for senior school and beyond.

Games & The Arts

Sports teams enjoy significant success in regular fixtures.  Music and Drama productions are of the highest standard. and the children perform in musical concerts and festivals.  A whole school art project recently won an international prize and was exhibited at the Natural History Museum in London.

Pastoral Care

Kindness is at the centre of a values based PSHE curriculum. A bubble system allows each child to quietly put their ‘bubble’ on a teacher’s desk if they need quality time with them, and across the school priority is given to talking to the children over everything else. Everyone takes part in a daily ‘mindful minute’ because wellbeing is absolutely key.

Recent Scholarships

Just under half of our Year 6 received scholarships to a range of senior schools

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

Relationships in a caring environment are crucial to ensuring children feel safe, happy and willing to make mistakes – key ingredients for learning. Relationships are vital for success beyond the classroom too; in friendships, sports teams, choirs, and drama casts. Relationships are how we know a child needs the next challenge or some extra support. They cultivate confidence, resilience and independence.

Outstanding Characteristics

We are a junior school of Reigate Grammar School, a top co-educational school with which we share a focus on wellbeing and pastoral care. Mistakes are encouraged and learning is fun, and this leads to outstanding academic outcomes. A welcoming and supportive community where children make wonderful memories and families feel a sense of belonging.
