Community

Reading School is fortunate in having a supportive and involved community of pupils, parents, alumni and staff.  We also have the active support of several representative organisations that make significant contributions to the smooth running of the School each year.  These include:

 

Reading School also promotes the involvement of pupils and staff in the wider community, including:

  • Our Community Service Programme, which helps sixth form students to find regular volunteering placements wiith local charities and primary schools
  • Hosting the Primary Academy supports academically gifted Year 5 pupils from six local primary school students, to try new subjects and to improve thinking and communication skills, and to raise their expectations and ambitions

Pupils and staff also support local and international charities with aims that are in keeping with Reading School's ethos.  Recent partners have included:

  • Thames Valley & Chiltern Air Ambulance Service - students have organised an annual concert in collaboration with students from Kendrick School
  • Sure 24, a school and orphanage for homeless children in Kenya which school supports through exchanges and fundraising
  • Launchpad Reading, a charity supporting homeless and vulnerable people in Reading
  • Daisy's Dream, a support service for bereaved children in the Reading area
