What The Good Schools Guide says..
Crack team of teachers is key. Highly qualified and occasionally shoeless (‘helps them feel grounded,’ we were told), they’re also known by their first names (means ‘have power but don’t feel bigger,’ thought one pupil) and have no discernable ‘off’ button, replying to texts from early morning to late at night and over the hols). The current year 4s are already working at same level as year 7 pupils – so it’s looking good.
What the school says...
Reach Academy Feltham is a small school for 4-19 year olds that aims to transform the lives of all of our pupils by providing them with the skills, attitudes and academic qualifications to flourish in any career and live happy and fulfilled lives.
Our school offers the very best education and is unique in a number of ways: we teach pupils from Reception through to Year 13; our school is small, with only 60 pupils in each year, ensuring strong personal relationships; every pupil works towards top grades and the opportunity to succeed at a top university; committed teachers do their utmost to ensure that pupils realise their potential; we expect all pupils to work hard and be respectful of others at all times.
Reach Academy Feltham is a publicly funded, independently-governed school which provides education free of charge to local children. We are a mixed, non-denominational school. ...Read more

Since 2012, Ed Vainker MA (30s). Following experiences as Teach First trainee in inner city schools and exposure to US Charter School movement, burning desire to set up school to right wrongs was born. His Eureka moment came in the US (he’d won an educational scholarship), when saw Waiting for Superman at cinema (got time wrong - was supposed to be Social Network but didn’t want to waste babysitter) and stayed up all night, committing educational vision to paper. Serendipity was the clincher: a mutual friend introduced him to Rebecca Cramer, school’s co-founder and secondary head (third co-founder, Jon McIntosh, remains a governor but doesn’t have active teaching role).
The first in family to go to university (Bristol, geography) and a fellow Teach Firster, Rebecca shared Ed’s sense of injustice...
