Reading Girls’ School is a multi-ethnic, single-sex, foundation school with partial selection, situated in South Reading. We welcome girls of all abilities and incorporate a selective stream in each year group for academically high achievers. Reading Girls’ School also boasts 368 fully networked computers for students in modern ICT suites.

The school is set in grounds of 15 acres and was selected by the Education Funding Agency for the Priority School Building Programme. We are looking forward to transferring to our brand new, start of the art school built on our existing site in September 2016.

About our School

Under the new OFSTED Framework the school was graded in December 2015 and placed in the category of ‘Special Measures’. This was a huge disappointment but as a school we have already noted the areas of improvement highlighted in the report and are taking swift and decisive action to address these. The governing body, teaching and support staff are all committed to ensuring we return to our previous ‘Good’ grading as soon as possible

Classrooms are very harmonious and students work well together. The Inspection also found that Reading Girls’ is a well-ordered school with considerate and respectful students displaying positive attitudes to their learning. All students are encouraged to attain excellence and the school aims to challenge and motivate the girls. Good qualifications, independence, confidence and the ability to communicate effectively with others are essential for adult life.

Reading Girls’ School works closely with many partners such as our collaboration with Kendrick School. Within the school site we have the Northumberland Training Academy designed to provide vocational opportunities for post-16 students both from within the school and the local community.

Reading Girls’ School strives to continue further improvements. Our aims are....
• To build a creative and enterprising community that can respond to challenge and embrace change.
• To inspire all to achieve their best in their academic, social, moral, spiritual, technological and entrepreneurial development.
• To ensure all members of the school community are empowered to become active lifelong learners with high aspirations for themselves and others in the global community.
• To create a vibrant learning environment where all are secure and encouraged to make healthy life choices. To teach creativity and teach creatively.
