Core Values of Integrity, Compassion, Curiosity, Resilience, Responsibility and Independence ensure pupils leave as rounded individuals with a strong moral compass.
About the school
Reed’s provides a broad academic education; results in recent years have been excellent, with a record-breaking 89% of GCSE grades awarded at A*/A (9-7) and 50% of all A Level grades at A*/A in 2019. Every year pupils achieve a number of Oxbridge and medical offers.
The Activities Curriculum is integral to the broad educational experience and there is an expectation that pupils will take every opportunity of the vast variety of options on offer. Sport, Drama and Music are all excellent; service is a key aspect encouraging pupils to show integrity and responsibility as well as compassion toward others.
The outstanding pastoral care provided at Reed's underpins the very essence of school life, with an emphasis on values, character and a range of experiences to provide a rounded education. The pastoral care and spiritual well-being provided is critical to produce happy and secure children who are far more likely to thrive in and outside the classroom.
