About Reigate College

About the College

We are a mixed, non-selective, sixth form college situated in Reigate, Surrey and provide outstanding education to around 2,500 16-19 year old students each year. Students consistently achieve excellent results and are well-prepared for the next stage in their lives, whether that is university, employment or apprenticeship.

We have an exceptional reputation both locally and nationally and have been graded 'outstanding' since 2005. We are consistently one of the very highest performing colleges in the country with a simple mission, to provide “high quality education in a supportive community.”

Values and Vision

The College is a great place to work and study, with an active and supportive community ethos embedded into everything we do. We work closely with the local community and have a strong sense of collaboration within the staff, who set high expectations of students, but always in a fully supportive and welcoming environment.

We are inclusive and work closely with students to develop the necessary independent learning skills to be successful in life. We place a strong emphasis on preparing students for the pathway of their choice and they have the opportunity to select dedicated Tutorials in the second year that reflect their preferred options.

Curriculum

The College offers over 50 different courses including A Levels and BTECs. The College is placed in the top 10% for A Level value added and success rates (achievement and retention) and our BTEC results are one of the highest in the country. Our value added for disadvantaged students also outperforms the national average for advantaged students.

Supporting students is critical. Therefore, each course is allocated ‘Plus’ support sessions as part of teaching allocations. This provides additional opportunities to enhance student performance, without staff needing to give up their free time.

College Staff

The Principal, Nick Clark is supported by the Senior Leadership Team and wider Senior Management Team. We employ over 250 teaching and support staff who are committed to providing sixth form education at its best, both in terms of results and in the development of students as responsible citizens.

Wellbeing

We have an extensive wellbeing support programme for both staff and students. The Director (Mental Health and Wellbeing) is assisted by a team of Wellbeing Mentors who work closely with the College community. Staff enjoy wellbeing days at the end of each term, designed to maintain a healthy work-life balance and students are encouraged to take part in some of the 50 plus extra-curricular and enrichment activities offered for free each week.

Facilities

We offer a modern, university-style campus that provides dedicated facilities for departments and students to work in. All members of staff have an allocated workspace in departmental offices, in addition to social space in the central College staffroom. The buildings and facilities are constantly being upgraded and the IT infrastructure compliments the ambition for students to spend concerted amounts of time on campus completing independent work, with almost one-to-one provision of devices for students and laptops for teaching staff.

CPD

We are a designated National Teaching School, recognising our outstanding teacher training programme (in partnership with Canterbury Christ Church University), innovative teaching and learning and exceptional results.

We are part of a sixth form college consortium, S7 (www.s7colleges.com), which provides excellent continued professional development opportunities for all staff.
