Aims and Ethos

Our aims and ethos underline the core values and mission of Reigate St Mary’s School. We are committed to academic excellence, character development, and inclusive education.


We are a community where:

  • We seek to make every child feel valued and safe and provide an environment where they can be recognised for their individual strengths, talents, effort and progress.
  • Children will develop emotionally and spiritually. They will be encouraged to develop a strong moral compass where academic excellence is balanced with an understanding of social responsibility and care for one another.
  • They will learn to work cooperatively and gain confidence in public speaking and performances.
  • Excellence in academic, sporting and artistic achievement are abundant, but where children enjoy coming to school and form happy and strong relationships which will often endure for life.
  • Children experience a broad range of extra-curricular opportunities to develop skills and try new and exciting activities which might become leisure activities for life.


Pupils prosper greatly within a culture where they are encouraged to contribute positively to the school, the local community and wider society.

I could not be more proud of how my children are progressing both as students and as human beings.  I think “good progress” is an understatement.
