Reigate Grammar School UK (RGS-UK) was founded by Alderman Henry Smith in 1675. For over 345 years, young people have been educated on the same site, in the heart of Reigate, a historic market town 15 miles south of the City of London. RGS-UK is recognised as the premier co-educational independent day school in the UK, offering the very best academic education with equal prominence placed on the arts, sport and a rich extra-curricular programme. 

In 2021 RGS-UK was awarded School of the Year by the Tatler and in 2019 the school received the prestigious UK Independent School of the Year award for Wellbeing and Pastoral Care, and in 2021 RGS was named School of the Year at the UK Social Mobility Awards. The school is a prominent HMC school and Headmaster, Shaun Fenton OBE, was the Chairman of HMC in 2018.

The first line of the school’s most recent ISI report asserts that ‘the quality of the students’ achievements and learning is exceptional’. The school is one of a small number of world-class schools to have been a global pioneer in High Performance Learning (HPL), focusing on the development of global citizens, advanced performers and enterprising learners.


The Board of Reigate Grammar School UK (RGS-UK) has committed to the creation of a family of schools across the world and Reigate Grammar School International (RGSI) is the school’s commercial arm that is responsible for working with our partners overseas.

RGSI was established in 2016 as a 100% owned subsidiary of RGS-UK. The strategic vision is to establish international schools around the world and to provide education consultancy services under licence to RGS-UK. This includes sharing its ethos; student welfare and pastoral model; teaching and learning philosophy; curriculum design expertise and operational systems.

By developing international connections, RGS-UK aims to establish cultural and learning links which will provide visit and exchange opportunities for students and staff. RGSI is firmly established in China, South East Asia and Middle East.
