RGS: Changing Lives since 1675...

Our Work


The Reigate Grammar School Foundation was established in 2003 by David Thomas (RGS Headmaster 2001-12) and exists to embrace friendship and cultivate a culture of philanthropic support.

Our role is to support the School in its aim of providing pupils with an outstanding educational experience.

We are proud that we are recognised as one of the leading co-educational schools in the country and there is a clear vision on how we want to enhance our community, broaden social access and develop our facilities as we move towards our 350th anniversary. Through the promotion of a caring environment we aim to establish long term friendship and association.


We exist to support the school and its aim of providing pupils with an outstanding educational experience. True to our ethos and moral purpose, we have an Open Access vision, where Reigate Grammar School is able to provide opportunities to any talented child no matter what their background

RGS gave me the superb education my parents could not have afforded. I’ve never forgotten that... So I decided to give a bursary to a first year student and I hope it gives her some of the opportunities RGS gave to me.

Andrew Sullivan (RGS 1974-1981)

The lessons learned in those RGS years were certainly formative in terms of teamwork, resilience and lifelong learning.

Iain McLean (RGS 1971-1974)

Maybe if I had not had the opportunities and encouragement from RGS my life would have followed another path. Those days seem many miles away now but I will never forget my five happy years there.

Laurie Reed (RGS 1948-1953)
