Reed's School is an HMC boarding and day school for boys aged 11-18 and girls in the Sixth Form.
The school is set in 40 acres of Surrey countryside and has extensive facilities including specialist teaching areas for science, languages, art, music, computing and drama. A state of the art building, FutureTech, provides modern workshops for Design & Technology and STEM teaching. Sports facilities for rugby, hockey, cricket, tennis, squash, swimming, netball and basketball include two artificial hockey pitches, an indoor swimming pool a Sports Hall and indoor and outdoor tennis courts.
The School was classed as ‘Excellent’ in all areas in their recent ISI Inspection. Highlighted comments include, “Pupils are extremely well educated in line with school’s aims to help them to make the most of their academic, cultural, and sporting talents”… “The outstanding extra-curricular provision is an expression of the school’s ethos”… “Pupils behave in an exemplary way, often showing high respect for each other and always being well mannered in interactions, both with adults and other pupils.”
Reed’s School was founded in 1813 by Rev Dr Andrew Reed, a philanthropist, minister and social reformer, with the aim of providing orphaned children with support, care and an education.
This Foundation continues to be an integral part of the School’s ethos today. Means tested Bursary places are offered to children who have lost the support of one or both parents – totalling around 10% of the school’s intake.
Headmaster, Mark Hoskins, states, “At Reed's we are ambitious for each and every individual we educate. We believe passionately in nurturing and encouraging each child within a supportive environment so that our pupils develop into confident, articulate and happy young men and women who go out into the world with a determination to improve it.
We believe that an all-boys education from eleven to sixteen allows our pupils to develop and mature in an environment where they are encouraged to participate in all aspects of school life and where the academic lessons are tailored to inspire and motivate them to excel. The co-educational Sixth Form then establishes a community which prepares all our pupils for the transition to university and for the challenges beyond.
Inspired by the vision of our founder, Andrew Reed, to support children who have lost one or both parents, our ethos, of celebrating our pupils' successes and inspiring them to unlock their true potential, is founded on outstanding pastoral care, excellent teaching and a philosophy of breadth of experience.”
