Reading School

A Selective School for Boys, Day and Boarding

Reading School is proud of its long and distinguished history. We are an ancient school (800 years and counting) housed in a building of fine Victorian architecture. It is both a specialist environment for the very able and an important part of the life and culture of the town itself.

Every boy is encouraged to develop and attain his potential. Teaching and learning are key to what we do. Our teachers are highly skilled and thirsty for knowledge about their subject and about their practice. Our students respond to this in kind and achieve some of the best results nationally at all Key Stages.

We have a wide curriculum of examined and additional activities. Our passion is sharing our expertise and, increasingly, our resources with the local community. Our experience of international travel and partnerships knows no bounds. Recent sporting tours of Argentina, the Caribbean, South Africa and, most recently, New Zealand have been outstanding successes. Our dual subject specialisms in the Humanities and Science are testament to the connection we have made with the Specialist Schools ethos and further evidence, if any were needed, of a profound understanding of what Gifted and Talented education in a grammar school context means in practice.

We are very proud to announce that we were voted the Best State Secondary School in England in the recent Sunday Times Parent Power guide to outstanding schools (November 2010). This is a fabulous accolade which everyone connected with the school should be proud of coming on top of superb achievements in OFSTED and public examinations last summer 2010.
