The Curriculum

Reed’s provides a broad education and the curriculum is designed to lead naturally into the next stage of a pupil’s education. Results in 2019 were record-breaking for GCSE with 89 per cent of grades at A*-B (9-6), 73 per cent at A*/A (9-7). The grades at A*(9-8) were 52 per cent, with over half of these being at the highest grade of 9. A-levels produced another excellent round of results in 2019 with an impressive 50% of all grades at A*/A. Almost a third of pupils gained straight A/A* grades.

Games & the Arts

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.

Pastoral Care

The outstanding pastoral care provided at Reed’s underpins the very essence of school life and places pupils at the heart of the School, 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.

University Places

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