Chinthurst is a junior school of Reigate Grammar School

Chinthurst became a junior school of Reigate Grammar School in February 2017.

Reigate Grammar School (RGS) is one of the top co-educational schools in Surrey and was awarded ‘Exceptional’ for Achievement and Learning by the ISI in 2016 – the first co-educational day school to be awarded this rating. In 2018, 90 percent of A Level grades were A* - B and at GCSE, 60 percent of grades were 9-8 (A* or higher).  This year they were named the UK Independent School of the Year for Wellbeing in recognition of their ground breaking focus on raising awareness of the importance of mental health.

Chinthurst’s strong academic provision and unique ethos, which values individual happiness, courage and independence, provides ideal preparation for the children’s transition to RGS. Specialist teachers from RGS visit regularly and Chinthurst pupils enjoy trips to RGS for music and sporting events. The children benefit from the continuity of a consistent educational ethos as the 'through' school is able to build long term relationships with them both pastorally and as learners.

The RGS Group have an exciting ongoing investment strategy at Chinthurst and both schools are looking forward to forging even closer links in future.

Places at RGS are offered to Chinthurst children in Year 5 on the basis of internal assessments, without the need to sit an entrance exam. This ensures that our pupils can continue to enjoy a broad curriculum until the end of Year 6.

Some of our children also progress to other top senior schools locally including Epsom College and St John’s, and as far afield as Brighton College and Winchester. They take with them unique Chinthurst values and the confidence that they are well prepared for the challenges of the next stage of their education.
