What the school says...
Reading School is recognised as one of the leading state schools in the country. It was selected as Sunday Times State School of the Year in 2010. OFSTED describes it as 'an outstanding school that enables students to reach exceptionally high standards both in their academic work and in their personal development'.
OFSTED rated our Boarding Provision in 2014 as 'Outstanding' stating 'The calibre of the boarding house staff is excellent. Their commitment, enthusiasm, motivation, morale and belief in the boarders are second to none. This means that boarders receive exceptionally high quality care that significantly enhances their personal development and well-being'.
Our students consistently achieve impressive academic results, including in 2014 88.1% achieving grade A* to B at A-level; 85% going on to one of the top 30 universities; and 17% winning places at Oxford or Cambridge. Boys participate in a wide range of enrichment activities, including sports, music, drama, chess, astronomy, and public speaking. Senior boys also give back to the local community by volunteering at local primary schools and charities.
At Reading School we believe all our students have gifts and talents. We aim for all to be resilient and rise to the challenges of learning and life; to be curious and balance logic with imagination; to achieve excellence with integrity; and to value learning for its own sake and for the benefit of others.
