MESSAGE FROM THE ACTING HEADMASTER We are committed to truly understanding and knowing your child, we see the brilliance in your child and will help them to reach their full potential. Reigate Grammar School Vietnam is a not-for-profit international school that blends the best of a traditional British independent school education and Vietnamese values and principles, within the dynamic culture of the city of Hanoi, for pupils aged 3-18 years old. The school is proud to serve both the international and the local community. As an international school, we embrace what our host country has to offer whilst bringing the world to our student’s doorstep. At Reigate Grammar School Vietnam, we understand the importance of building relationships to ensure that every child is seen and heard. This ethos comes from our sister school, Reigate Grammar School UK, which they have developed over their nearly 350 years of experience. We proudly offer an outstanding education where children feel a true sense of belonging. We want to understand and know your child, not just measure them by their academic results. It’s through these strong relationships that the children are able to flourish and become the best version of themselves. All as a part of a big Reigatian family. The friends, memories and experiences that our students have will shape their future and will prepare them for whatever path they may follow. We believe in our students. We support and encourage our students. And, most importantly, we care about our students. We provide a broad and balanced programme of learning. They develop skills of resilience, confidence and independence, setting them up for whatever adventures and challenges they may face. Our talented teachers know that developing the whole child is the whole point. There is more to a great education than what goes on in the classroom. Our children are encouraged to pursue their own interests, choosing from a vast range of extra-curricular activities and trips. As a parent I understand the importance of knowing your child is happy, safe and secure. We are more than a school, we are a family and at the heart of every family is the children. Happy children do great things and get great results. I am honoured to be the Acting Headmaster at RGS Vietnam and would love to welcome you to the school. Mr Patrick Glennon - Acting Headmaster of RGS Vietnam

EXECUTIVE HEADMASTER It is my honour to welcome you to Reigate Grammar School Vietnam (RGS Vietnam), part of the group of Reigate Grammar Schools. Founded on the same ethos and values as one of the UK’s leading independent schools, RGS Vietnam combines academic excellence with a truly holistic and well-rounded education. We aim to prepare every student for the next step on their lifelong journey, ensuring they have the skills to thrive within an ever-changing global society. Building on the academic heritage of RGS (founded in 1675) we deliver an innovative bicultural education, blending the best of British and Vietnamese curricula. Such an approach provides an excellent educational foundation for our students, supporting them to achieve the very best outcomes throughout their school lives before moving on to study at some of the world’s most prestigious universities. I firmly believe that strong academic outcomes are, in part, a result of personal development and that a holistic education fosters the skills required to succeed in later life. Our timetable is designed to provide students with varied and challenging experiences which nurture their talents and develop the personal, social and emotional skills to support life-long learning. Pastoral care is central to our continued success throughout our group of schools. At RGS Vietnam, we have a personalised approach to learning where students are known as individuals. Reigatians worldwide are characterised by a strong moral purpose which prepares them to make the world a better place, aware of their advantages and with a strong sense of responsibility. As a school founded on both Vietnamese and British boarding school values, the House System is at the heart of the school: it ensures everyone feels part of a team, allows leadership to be nurtured, talent to shine, confidence to surge, teamwork to flourish and a competitive spirit to develop. I look forward to welcoming you to our school and highlighting all that an education at RGS Vietnam can offer your child. Shaun Fenton OBE - Executive Headmaster of RGS Vietnam
