About the school
“The school has a real sense of community and helps students reach the highest of academic standards as well as developing a keen sense of purpose and responsibility. Teaching is truly inspirational. The Curriculum is outstanding” OFSTED 2010
At Reading School, we aspire to be a ‘World Class School’, with excellence at the heart of everything we do.
We are committed to providing an inspirational environment for our students, where they are actively engaged in learning and optimistic that they can achieve. We enable them to develop leadership skills with an emphasis on integrity, teamwork and celebrating success.
As a school with a 900 year history of educating young men, we are not complacent. We aim for a fusion of intelligent innovation with a respect for tradition.
Our partnerships with schools in China and Denmark enable us to learn from others in terms of both academic achievement and personal development.
Excellence – striving to achieve the best we can in all we do. To inspire learning and leadership together.
Reading School boys value the acquisition of knowledge of the truth and the quest for excellence through intellectual curiosity, creativity and growth. They should be enthusiastic and enjoy learning for the intellectual challenge.
Integrity – doing the right thing, commitment, respect for oneself, others and the environment, utilising knowledge and understanding wisely – thereby enabling informed decisions and the quest for truth and freedom.
Reading School boys will be fine young men of integrity, principle and character who support each other in their quest for excellence.
Leadership – a dynamic sense of purpose, dedicated to working with and for others.
Reading School boys demonstrate a spirit of loyalty, commitment, compassion, humour and community.
