Important News

Chinthurst School, a much-loved and highly successful preparatory school which excels in providing a caring and inspirational education to local children, is entering into a partnership with two other highly regarded local schools, Reigate St Mary's Preparatory and Choir School (RSM) and Reigate Grammar School (RGS).

Under the new long term commitments, Chinthurst will be fully supported to retain and develop its current ethos and values while becoming a key member of the RGS family of schools.

Tim Button who has led the turnaround of Chinthurst felt the time was right to step down, take a well-earned break and let a new head be appointed for the longer term. We are pleased to announce that Cathy Trundle, formerly RSM Deputy Head, has joined Chinthurst as Headteacher in succession to Tim.

Miss Trundle said: "This is a tremendous opportunity for Chinthurst, Reigate St Mary's and Reigate Grammar School and I want to pay tribute to the leadership that Mr Button has provided to the school. It is clear that Chinthurst is a happy, caring school as soon as you walk through the door. I am looking forward to getting to know Chinthurst staff and parents as I settle into my new role."
