RGS Autumn Term Open Events


We are delighted to show parents and families around Reigate Grammar School, and we are proud to say that visitors frequently comment on how friendly our welcome is. We are pleased to open our doors to visitors once again, in a safe and responsible way.

In light of the ever-changing Covid-19 situation, there has been an important format change to our open events.

We, like all schools, are battling last minute changes to government advice. With this in mind, we have come to the reluctant decision that we are not allowed to bring large groups of visitors into the school at the present time and are therefore making some changes to our forthcoming open mornings.

Virtual Live Q&A Events:

We have planned Virtual Live Q&A events in place of the scheduled Working Open Mornings.   Mr. Fenton, the Headmaster, will start the meeting at 9.15am by showing a short video and then will ask for questions from all attendees.  Mrs Lawson, Assistant Head in charge of transition and Mrs Watkins, Admissions Registrar, will also be available to answer questions.

Live Q&A: Thursday 10 September:  9.15-10.30am:  2021 entry only

Live Q&A: Friday 18 September: 9.15-10.30am: All years

Live Q&A: Friday 2 October: 9:15-10:30am: 2021 entry only

Live Q&A: Thursday 12 November: 9:15-10:30am: 2021 entry only

Live Q&A: Monday 16 November: 9:15-10:30am: 2021 entry only

Individual Tours of the main school site:

We fully understand the importance of visiting the school in person.   We are therefore currently putting together a plan for individual tours of the main school site specifically for those of you who are interested in 2021 entry and will let publish the dates and times of tours as soon as they are available to register for online.

Virtual Open Events:

In addition to the Live Q&As and Individual Tours we will be running a more extensive virtual open event once a month between now and November. The first one will take place when the Annual Open Morning was scheduled on Saturday 26 September. These virtual open events will follow a similar format to the Live Q&As but will also include speeches from the Headmaster, Assistant Head, Students and a Video Tour of the school. There will be breakout rooms within the Q&A session to enable you to ask questions to various departments.

Virtual Open Event: Tuesday 13 October:  9.15-11:00am:  All years

We really hope that we can return to our normal Working Open Morning format once government guidelines state that we can allow groups of visitors into the school.   In the meantime, we do hope you will join us on a personal tour (more details to follow soon) and register for the Virtual Live Q&A and Virtual Open Events taking place this term.
