LEIGHTON PARK School is a vibrant learning community where students have time and space to live, learn and grow.

Their broad and holistic curriculum encourages students to become enquiring, lifelong learners who are passionate about using their skills to make a positive contribution to the world. For more than 100 years the values of peace, integrity, simplicity, equality, respect and truth have guided the community of Leighton Park.

In beautiful 60-acre grounds, it is the ideal environment in which to think, reflect and learn. With flexibility in length of the school day and more than 10 school transport routes, including Newbury, Basingstoke and Ascot, both boarding and day students are able to balance school and family life while also enjoying the vast range of extracurricular activities on offer. From ballet to falconry, there is something for everyone.

You and your family are warmly invited to attend Leighton Park School’s annual open morning on Saturday, October 5 from 10am to 12 noon, when the whole school will be present to welcome you to the beautiful park.

ST Joseph’s College is fast becoming Reading’s independent day school of choice for boys and girls aged three to 18.

Headmaster Andrew Colpus has completed his first year at the school, and is spearheading an exciting programme of investment and development.

Changes have been made to the school day, resulting in slightly longer school hours and an extra 100 minutes of tuition per week, giving each pupil even more opportunities for learning. In addition to this, the school will now be open from 7.45am until 6pm for all pupils, offering additional activities, clubs and sports. A holiday club for pupils aged three to 14 means that children can benefit from consistency of care and environment year round.

The dining hall has been refurbished over the summer and now provides a bright and welcoming space for socialising as well as eating.

The main college open evening is on Thursday, October 3 from 6.30pm to 9pm and the next Prep open morning is on Thursday, October 17 at 9.15am. To book a place call 0118 966 1000 or email
