The Read School exists to provide an all-round education for its pupils, combining independent tradition with the best of modern practice.
There has been a constant programme of upgrading and expansion over the last ten years with many additions and improvements to the fabric of the school including the Shipley building, now housing the Pre-Prep School; an extension to the Ramsker building (for teaching of English); extended and improved dining room; refurbished and modernised science laboratories and library; Creative Arts Centre for teaching Art, Design Technology, Graphics and Food and a stunning upgraded Sports Hall. Boarding accommodation has also been recently upgraded for both boys and girls.
The summer of 2016 has seen the MUGA Astroturf pitch completely refurbished and replaced and the beginning of an exciting new venture with a new facility for the teaching of music in the school.
The guiding values at Read School are those of fair-mindedness, hard work, enjoyment and treating others with proper respect and consideration. We also attach great importance to manners, good discipline, service to others and to caring for the School and external environment. We value both effort and achievement and we encourage every positive contribution that a pupil makes to the life of the Read School community.
