General Guidance


The majority of pupils join Green Shoots in September or January of the academic year in which they turn 3 (depending on which month their birthday falls in). Others join directly into Reception the Autumn Term following their 4th Birthday. They then progress on through Years 1 to 6. The Upper School (Year 3) begins at age 8.

Places are only offered to children entering Years 1 to 6 subject to satisfactory assessment and at the discretion of the Headmaster.

There are currently 16 Choral Scholarships at any one time; details are available from the Head of Choral Music, Mrs Glynne-Jones.

The school week and terms
The teaching week is from Monday to Friday. Pupils who are members of school teams will be required to attend on occasional weekends.

Parents will be notified of the dates of terms and holidays well in advance. With the exception of the October break all half terms are of one week’s duration.

To apply for a place at Reigate St Mary’s, an Application Form must be completed and sent to the Bursar, Mrs Victoria Smith. For further information regarding available places and for any additional questions you may have regarding admissions, please contact:

Mrs Marie Goddard the Admissions Secretary on 01737 244880 or MCG@Reigatestmarys.org.


When my children get up in the morning, they want to go to school. I never had that at their last school.


Throughout the school, all pupils are confident, articulate and emotionally mature for their age.
