The Curriculum

The philosophy behind the educational curriculum at Reed’s is based on three dimensions: core knowledge, skills, and values. The ability to impart information, share knowledge and make connections across multiple disciplines is crucial.

Games & the Arts

The excellent Activities Curriculum is integral to the broad educational experience and there is an expectation that pupils will take advantage of every opportunity on offer. Service is a key aspect encouraging pupils to show integrity and responsibility as well as compassion toward others.

Pastoral Care

The bedrock of a Reed’s education is the quality of the pastoral care given. It underpins the very essence of school life and places pupils at the heart of the school, with an emphasis on values and character to provide a rounded education. This is critical to produce happy and secure children who will thrive in and outside the classroom. The House system and boarding infrastructure provide the wrap-around care that benefits all pupils.

University Places

Every year pupils achieve a number of Oxbridge and medical offers. The vast majority go to Russell Group universities.
