Private Prep School & Early Years Education Reading

Our private independent prep school & early years education, just a short drive away from Reading, offers an excellent education from early years right through to the national KS1 & KS2 curriculum.

We passionately believe in children reaching their full potential in all areas and that they can best achieve this when they are happy and healthy. For this reason, we’re totally committed to producing an environment that best supports your children to thrive. We know that children learn best when they feel safe, happy and have strong, positive relationships with their care givers and educators. It’s imperative to us that our pupils develop strong self-esteem, mutual respect and healthy competition. Children are the future, so we want them to learn from an early age how to make their own positive contributions to society. In order to reach their full potential, they need an inclusive and supportive place in which to grow.

Years of experience have shown us that this model allows our students to achieve incredible results, both academically and in other areas of their lives. We start teaching specialist subjects, such as Music, Design Technology, Sport, Science, Art, and Languages at the start of Year 3.

Our extensive sports programme uses specialist coaches to teach a wide range of activities including hockey, cricket, tennis, gymnastics, and rugby. We have good links with all of the other schools in the area and our pupils often compete in matches against their teams.

All children have a special talent and we like to provide extra-curricular activities for everybody. Our clubs include jazz dance, ballet, breakdancing, drama, netball, hockey, drumming, football, tennis, rugby, athletics, gymnastics, and animation. We also offer forest school activities and outdoor education as part of our weekly timetable.
