Reigate College is the official sixth form of Carrington, de Stafford, Merstham Park, Oakwood, Reigate, The Beacon and The Priory schools.
This means that Year 11 students applying from one of these schools will automatically be given a place at the College if they meet the College’s entry requirements (minimum 5 GCSEs at Grade 4 or above and a satisfactory school reference).
Applying from a Partner School
Students from the College’s Partner Schools are invited to apply for a place at the College from 21 September 2022 ahead of students from non-Partner Schools.
Year 11 students from the College’s Partner Schools do not need to apply for a prospectus pack, as these will be distributed via their schools.
Partner School students are interviewed first (from November to December) and receive offers ahead of students from non-Partner Schools.

Gifted & Talented Events
For many years, the College has run termly ‘Gifted & Talented’ sessions for Year 8 and 9, Partner School pupils. These sessions cover a broad range of subject areas, including already familiar curriculum subjects such as Maths, History and PE, in addition to ‘new subject’ areas such as Psychology, Economics, Film & Media.
As well as ‘trying out’ what it might be like to be a College student, the sessions also give students the chance to learn about a specific subject at an ‘A Level’ standard, which in turn encourages them to think about the subjects they might want to study from Year 12.
The College also runs extremely popular 5 week ‘taster courses’ for aspiring Year 8 & 9 aspiring Medics, Vets and Dentists. These give students the opportunity to find out, at an early stage, how to access these university courses and careers.
We’re also fortunate to offer an after-school Performing Arts Drama Club, and Summer Schools for aspiring Music and Performing Arts students.
