What says..

Teaching of a fairly formal nature (and some classrooms plain rather than purl when it came to display) but judging by interest levels – front-facing, engaged pupils clearly absorbed in subjects – it’s quality stuff. Extracurricular is ‘the heartbeat of the school,’ says head (who should know, what with taking games lessons on a Wednesday afternoon and being brains of the enterprise). D of E, CCF and many, many trips – ‘more than we need,’ thought one parent (but in a good way).  Canny land acquisition almost allows stroll into town to be accomplished entirely on school land...

What The Good Schools Guide says

Headmaster

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. Started and ditched City career for education, first in west London comprehensive until drawn by challenge of The Ridings School in Halifax, labelled worst in Britain in TV documentary. Exhilarated by challenge of working with one of the first superheads, who achieved rags to riches magic, forged in hotbed of innovation. ‘If something worked here, would work anywhere.’

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
