Nine Mile Ride Primary School

About the school

Be part of our amazing, team at our happy, well-established and popular primary school.

We are at the heart of the Finchampstead community on the outskirts of the lovely market town of Wokingham.

Our school is set in beautiful surroundings and has behaviour described as “exemplary” (Ofsted 2022 – A good school).


Visions and values

Everything we do is driven by our vision for both pupils and staff:

“Pupils are delightful at this welcoming school. They are happy. Together, pupils and staff embody the school’s aim:

“Learning for life, together we discover, nurture, achieve and shine” (Ofsted 2022 – A good school).

Our values of being respectful, resilient, resourceful and reflective enable our children to develop a personal ethic that positively affects behaviour and equips them with the knowledge, concepts, skills and attitudes that make them ready for being happy, responsible citizens of the 21st century.

Academic performance is very strong performing within the top 20% of all schools at the end of Key Stage 1 and 2 2022; however, the school is not complacent and continues to strive for academic success for all pupils’ year on year.

Our passion for building learning skills ignites a lifelong zest for learning; building confidence and the resilience to succeed. We encourage our children to have a growth mind-set which allows them to see their ability as expandable rather than pre-determined. We believe their primary school experience should be magical and wondrous, filled with inspirational and unforgettable learning experiences.

We challenge all pupils to strive for creative, emotional, sporting and personal accomplishment within a broad, vibrant and enriched curriculum.

Our school emphasises The Arts, believing that self-expression and creativity are an integral part of personal success.  The school is known locally for its sporting success and has achieved the Sainsbury’s Platinum Award for Sport which is an amazing accolade that we are truly proud of.

Lovely working environment

Nine Mile Ride Primary School is set in beautiful, expansive grounds. This offers a magical world of discovery for children. They learn first-hand about the treasures of the natural environment whilst developing important interests and aptitudes that we hope will develop into life-long passions.

Strong, supportive leadership team

Our supportive senior leadership team and local advisory board recognise that it is our teams’ commitment to put children at the heart of everything they do which makes Nine Mile Ride such a popular school.

We want both our children and staff to enjoy coming to school each day and find it rewarding and inspirational.

We are aware of how much energy our team put into their roles and carefully protect their work-life balance.
