Future Stories is a social mobility project working in partnership with local primary schools. The aim of the Future Stories project is to ensure that Reading School is full of high ability students from a range of social and economic backgrounds, who are eager to reach their future story goals.
Our target is to substantially increase the number of pupil premium pupils and looked after pupils who apply to take our entrance test. In order to gain admittance to Reading School all children must achieve the qualifying score to be eligible for entry. Children registered for pupil premium and service premium at any point in the last six years and who live within our designated area have priority for admission places over those that are not.
A familiarisation programme has been set up with the objective of inspiring pupils to take the entrance test.
We are keen to address social mobility. We want our school to represent the full diversity of backgrounds that children come from. We believe that there are able, clever children in our designated areas who do not have the same opportunity to succeed as those from more privileged backgrounds and at Reading School we want to attempt to do something about that.
The main objectives of the Future Stories programme are:
1. To develop the leadership skills, capacity and capability of students currently at Reading School, by working in partnership with state primary schools.
2. To raise aspirations and widen access to Reading School for children from disadvantaged backgrounds.
