Reigate Valley College (RVC) is an Alternative Provision 'AP' school for students aged 5 to 16. Key Stage 1 & 2 are based in Redhill RH1 2HY, Key Stage 3 in Reigate RH2 8HX and Key Stage 4 in Reigate RH2 8PP. Our aim is to reduce the numbers of pupils who are permanently excluded from school by offering mainstream schools an alternative to exclusion. We offer a range of interventions so pupils can be supported, either within their mainstream school or at the college. Our mission statement is "Helping you to move on; helping your readiness to learn". Quite simply we aim to provide pathways for all our students so that they can continue to access their education whether that is in mainstream schools, colleges or a work environment. In October 2017 we continued to be rated Outstanding by Ofsted.

RVC became part of the Inclusive Education Trust (IET) which formed in September 2021 and works alongside Wey Valley College (Guildford) and the Fordway Centre (Ashford Mdx). So, whilst you get the benefits of working within a small and supportive setting, by working so closely with other PRU’s we also provide you with a wide network of support, excellent opportunities for continued professional development and diverse opportunities for career progression.
