Prospective Families

Welcome to Maiden Erlegh School in Reading.

This page contains essential and helpful information to guide students and their parents/carers who might be considering joining the school. With COVID restrictions in place, this year we have been unable to host our usual open evening. Instead we have put together a number of short videos to show off the school and the wonderful learning community it is.

On this page below  you will find:

  • A  video “taster” of our subjects and teaching in the school
  • A welcome from our student leadership team
  • A virtual tour of our wonderful modern facilities
  • A presentation from Mr Johnson, Headteacher

In the menu on the right, we have links to :

  • A page giving further information about how we will support your child as they transition from primary to secondary school, including a video presentation from Assistant Headteacher Mr Hood (see menu on the right) about how we support students through the vital transition from primary to secondary school  
  • A  page with links about the application process and a video presentation from Mr Johnson  about applying for a place at the school

Our school is an exciting and vibrant community. Do have a look at the latest edition of our half termly newsletter to find out more.  The Pulse can be found here.

Finally, we are extremely  proud to share the achievements of our students.  Please see below for the latest:
