Reigate College, graded ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted, is the offical sixth form of de Stafford, Merstham Park, Oakwood, Reigate and Warwick schools.

Gifted & Talented Events
Year 8 and 9s
For the last few years, the College has run three ‘Gifted & Talented’ sessions for Year 8 and 9 pupils, per year, for the College’s partner schools. These sessions give pupils the chance to be ‘stretched and challenged’ in both familiar curriculum areas such as Maths and Science and in subjects that may be new to them, such as Psychology and Economics.
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 students to think about the subjects they might want to study from Year 12.
Year 8 and 9 ‘G&T’ events usually take place after school in the Autumn and Spring Terms and during a morning session in ‘school time’ during the Summer Term.
The College also offers workshops for Year 11s who have already applied to do specific subjects at the College, such as a ‘Spotlight on Performing Arts’ afternoon for students who have applied to do at least one BTEC Performing Arts course (Acting, Musical Theatre, Dance or Music).
