Several of Reading School’s buildings have been designated as Grade II listed buildings by English Heritage. It’s no wonder that the picturesque school grounds are often chosen as a TV show location. Conveniently, the town of Reading is only a 30-minute train ride from London.
In addition to the historic buildings such as the chapel, the school is well-equipped with modern facilities, including a fitness suite, squash courts, gym and other on-site sports facilities. It has recently invested in a new Science Centre.
Reading School ranks 8th best school in the UK for GCSE results, while A Level results consistently comprise 90% A*-B grades (2015-2017). Ofsted has rated the school “Outstanding” in all areas (2017). Moreover, there have been 150 Oxbridge Successes among students over the last six years.
Students are encouraged to join an array of clubs and societies spanning across sports, music, chess, bridge, Warhammer, drama and computer science – to name a few. There are currently more than 50 lunchtime and after-school clubs and societies on offer.
