A mixed mainstream primary school for 7-11 year olds in Reading. The school, which opened in 2011, was set up by a partnership between local families and CfBT, a local education charity, to meet an acute need for school places locally. It was the first free school to open in Reading and will serve 100 pupils when full. The school’s small size encourages a strong sense of community and inclusivity, aided by group enrichment activities such as visiting the West End and an annual sports day. The school was inspected by Ofsted in 2013 and found to be ‘Outstanding’ in all areas.
