What The Good Schools Guide says
Since 2012, Mr Shaun Fenton MA PGCE Med NPQH (50s). Formerly head of Pate’s and founded and chaired National Grammar Schools Association. Educated at Haberdashers’ Aske’s, then PPE at Oxford.

Special Education Needs
Reigate Grammar School is open to applications from any prospective pupil with a physical and/or mental impairment. The school's policy is to apply the same admissions criteria to all pupils and potential pupils regardless of any disability of which it is aware, and not to put any disabled pupil or potential pupil at a disadvantage compared to any pupil who is not disadvantaged because of a disability. All applications will be judged fairly and the school will consider any reasonable adjustments that may need to be made to cater for the child's disability. When applying for a place, parents are asked to write to the Headmaster setting out the nature and extent of any disability, and whether or not they wish the school to take any disability into account during the admissions process. The school currently engages two part-time learning support tutors, who are available to work with pupils on a one-to-one basis. This service is designed to assist those pupils with mild learning difficulties such as dyslexia or dyspraxia. However, the tutors' time is limited and this service is not suitable for pupils who need more help than one session each week can provide. 10-09
