Reigate St Mary’s Preparatory and Choir School (RSM) was founded in 1950 to provide an education for choir boys who sang at St Mary’s Church in Reigate. Today, RSM is a modern, forward thinking coeducational junior school set in a wonderful 15-acre school site with modern buildings, playing fields, playgrounds, nature areas, dens and a Forest School.
RSM has approximately 360 boys and girls ranging from 2½ to 11 years old. The Nursery offers full wraparound care for 48 weeks of the year and the children’s days are filled with exciting adventures and lots of fresh air. A joined up curriculum and familiarity with staff and surroundings ensures children move seamlessly from Nursery to Reception. The junior school provides an inspirational and exciting education preparing children for happy and fulfilled lives. Academic outcomes are excellent, and this is achieved within a warm and caring environment by developing close relationships with children and their families. RSM children know they are truly valued, and this gives them the confidence to take challenges, learn from mistakes and ultimately reach their full potential. RSM was shortlisted for Independent Prep School of the Year 2020 in recognition of this.
Children play a variety of sports and the school site has four football pitches, a hockey pitch, two multipurpose courts, an artificial cricket strip and a 200-metre running track. The school also has use of RGS’s impressive sports grounds at Hartswood.
