Reigate Valley College (RVC) is a Pupil Referral Unit (PRU) (also known as a Short Stay School) for students aged 5 to 16. 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.

About us

Reigate Valley College is a progressive, innovative short stay school, catering for the needs of students who have difficulty accessing a mainstream curriculum.

The College sites are located in close proximity to the towns of Reigate and Redhill, surrounded by the beautiful Surrey countryside, yet accessible by road (M25) and rail.

We aim to provide high quality education for all our pupils. Pupils are offered a broad and balanced curriculum. Their attainment is assessed regularly, in order to monitor their progress in both curriculum and behaviour, and specific learning and behaviour targets are set. Pupils are encouraged to access the curriculum, to be independent and to learn strategies to control their own behaviour.

Through outstanding leadership (Ofsted 2017), the School maximises the educational and personal potential of all students. The members of our staff team are valued and encouraged to reach optimum career progression through the provision of CPD training. Programmes are varied, interesting and staff are encouraged to use their initiative by employing an eclectic approach to education.

The School epitomises all that is good in education today, the working environment is vibrant, inspirational, sometimes challenging but also rewarding and energising.There is a strong emphasis on team spirit producing a happy, inviting and caring workplace. We promote a holistic approach to teaching and this ethos is equally applied to staff.

RVC is an inspirational place to work, where you have a positive impact on the lives of some of Surrey’s most vulnerable students every day.
