What The Good Schools Guide says..
Unusual, even revolutionary, in that pupils do two years at key stage 3 and two at GCSE, which leaves them with three for A level. Definitely a school for the all rounder. Huge value attached to extracurricular, which none the less happens mainly in the long lunch hour, because of the scattered catchment (travel difficulties...

Since September 2016, Tim Harris, previously deputy head of Reading School. History degree from Newcastle and PGCE from Sussex; has previously held a range of posts in non-selective schools in the Berkshire area. He is married with a young son.
Unusual, even revolutionary, in that pupils currently do two years at key stage 3 and two at GCSE, which leaves them with three for A level - but this is changing from 2017.
