Welcome to the Prep School

Welcome to Reigate St Mary’s, an outstanding prep school with a supportive ethos, strong community and wonderful buzz of liveliness. School days here are full of exciting activities, both inside the classrooms and outside in our extensive grounds – there is always something imaginative and fun happening. As a result, our children are happy, secure and ready to learn, safe in the knowledge that they are cared for and valued.


At Reigate St Mary’s we believe a good education should be an inspirational and exciting journey preparing children for a happy and fulfilled life.  In short, we aim to produce confident, resilient and creative young people who will one day become leaders who care deeply about a sustainable and equitable future for everyone.

In a world where there is a dearth of good leadership, believing that our young people can be change makers in whatever walk of life they end up in, is really our core business. We want them to believe in themselves and think big.

All pupils achieve extremely well, academically and in extracurricular activities. Pupils are confident, curious learners who are encouraged to be creative and take risks with their learning.

Above all, we achieve this by prioritising relationships with children and their families. From their earliest days in Nursery right through to their transition to senior school, we get to know and support each child, recognising their individual strengths. Consequently, our children know they are truly valued at school and this gives them the confidence to take challenges, learn from mistakes and ultimately reach their full potential.

We constantly seek to stay at the cutting edge of education recognising that the world is changing quickly and education needs to keep up.  Therefore the integration of information technology, the application of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and maths) and how artificial intelligence can be harnessed to prepare children for an exciting future, is constantly on our school development agenda.

Our website is just a small snapshot of the creative and happy lives our children lead at Reigate St Mary’s. We would love to show you more on an individual tour or at one of our open events. I look forward to meeting you!

The Headmaster is amazing.  After having two kids go through the school and having our third child here all I can say is improvement.   The standards have gone beyond and above my expectations.

We partnered with the Breteau Foundation to help develop their Plastic Changemakers Programme. The children helped to make this informative video:

Our Partnership with Twin Science was fascinating. Watch the video above for more information.
