Located in the western fringes of Reading and overlooking the beautiful Thames Valley, our school aims to ensure that all young people develop the knowledge and values to thrive in modern life. We call this ‘success for life’ - where students use their hard work and character values to achieve academic success and develop economic independence, as well as forging positive relationships, supporting their local environment and community, and looking after their own physical and mental health.

We focus specifically on nine CHARACTER values. Three of these focus on personal attributes – Confidence, Happiness and Articulacy. Three focus on perseverance – Resilience, Ambition and Courage. And the final three focus on contributing to others – Tolerance, Empathy and Respect.

The strong behaviour culture has an immediate impact, creating calm classrooms.
