What the school says...

Pangbourne offers a challenging all-round education, embracing academic rigour and a diversity of sport, music and extra-curricular activities, in a small school environment where every child can shine.
Set in 230 acres of Berkshire countryside, to the West of Reading, just minutes from the M4, the College provides a superb quality of life in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Running through the heart of everything at the College are the seven Flag Values, which are specifically Kindness, Selflessness, Moral Courage, Initiative, Industry, Resilience and Integrity.
The principal aim behind all of Pangbournes activities whether academic, sporting, musical or extra-curricular is to develop one or more of these values. Students take pride in being part of the College and are made to feel involved and valued in its close-knit community.
