Head PhotoPadworth College is a co-educational boarding and day school which offers an outstanding opportunity for students aged 13-19 years from the UK and all over the world to be taught in very small classes in a small and friendly school with an informal atmosphere where excellent results are routinely achieved. A significant proportion of students come from overseas creating a vibrant international community; equally a substantial number are British and many of them are day students. The College's rural setting provides a peaceful and secure environment for study; yet the campus is within easy reach of the university town of Reading and just 45 minutes by road from Heathrow. Padworth offers a wide range of flexible academic programmes onto which students can be accepted at any point in the year and may stay for just one term or as long as five years. GCSE - a full two-year programme leading to GCSE/IGCSE in up to nine subjects with a full range of supporting courses and activities; One-year GCSE/IGCSE programme is also available in up to five subjects. A Level - a two year programme - students choose 3, 4 or 5 subjects from the wide range available. Business Foundation - a one year course in Business, Finance and Law as well as extensive English Language tuition for students which is accepted in place of A Levels by a number of British universities. Pre A level courses designed for international students which combine English language tuition with academic subjects. This course prepares students for GCSE or A level study. Modern classrooms and specialist science laboratories are complemented by a well equipped IT room, library and art department. A number of generous scholarships worth up to 50% of the total fees (tuition and accommodation) are available for study at GCSE and A Level as well as for Art. Outstanding pastoral care is provided by the team of experienced resident house staff whose role is to guide and support students. House staff also organise an activities and excursions programme in the evenings and at weekends for students to make the most of school life. Boarding students are accommodated in comfortable single or double bedrooms with sitting rooms and kitchen facilities in each boarding house. The campus offers a range of sports facilities including a gym, outdoor swimming pool and tennis, netball and basketball courts.
