The Reddam House philosophy is unlike any other and with a worldwide reputation for academic, cultural and sporting excellence. Reddam House Berkshire is a majestic school, in a beautiful, secure setting at the heart of the 125-acre estate - a truly inspirational environment.
Our philosophy is designed around the individual, giving students a large amount of freedom in how their schooling is organised, with personalised supervision and guidance from Reddam House committed teachers. Because we cater for children from just three months old to 18 years, we can offer a unique, seamless education to all and lasting friendships. Our co-educational, non-denominational formula is designed to inspire students to attain their maximum potential in a nurturing, progressive and academic environment.
We carefully select our teachers, who are specialists in their field, to ensure students get the very best guidance and advice throughout their schooling: we create happy, well-rounded children who love school and the school experience. In addition to an extensive range of subjects at GCSE and A-level, the EPQ (Extended Project Qualification) course in the Sixth Form allows our young people to further develop their research and communication skills. Light and airy classrooms, equipped with the latest in technology, provide an enhanced learning environment.
Public speaking is a timetabled lesson in Middle School and students can take part in local competitions. Both Dance and Music are an integral part of the Reddam House experience, giving students the chance to work their way through graded examinations, further increasing their confidence. Our magnificent theatre, with seating for up to 350, puts students centre stage in a wide range of productions, from plays and musicals, to dance shows and debates. We have a large dance studio, two smaller studios and a music school with numerous practice rooms. All students are encouraged to learn at least one musical instrument, and we have a wide range of music and instrumental groups, from jazz and rock to string ensembles and a chamber choir.
While students are encouraged and pushed to reach their full potential, the primary aim is for students to enjoy their sport and to participate. Regular fixtures take place in Rugby, Hockey, Football, Cricket, Netball, Rounders, Swimming, Tennis, Basketball, Golf, Cross Country and Judo.
Our dedicated Gymnasium Centre, with its sprung floor, encourages our award-winning gymnasts, who are already recognised at national and international level. The Duke of Edinburgh award and the Combined Cadet Force (CCF) are also both popular options. Further investments in our sporting facilities have continued with our new Astroturf pitches and an extensive upgrade to our swimming pool completed for September 2018.
Class tutors are fine-tuned to respond to students' individual emotional needs while our senior students act as mentors to the younger students and lead by example. Our Student Voice reports to the Sixth Form Judiciary - elected by a whole school vote - which meets regularly with the Principal to convey students' comments and feedback.
Alongside our Extended Day Options, which offer supervision and meals from 7.30am - 8.30pm, we offer the full range of boarding options - flexi, weekly and full. We currently have two boarding houses with separate accommodation for boys and girls aged 11-18, with resident house-parents, tutors and a matron. All rooms have recently been refurbished to a high standard and single rooms are en-suite. There is a full programme of activities for students who stay with us at weekends, with cinema and theatre trips, visits to places of interest and, of course, shopping!
