About Maiden Erlegh School in Reading

In January 2014, a bid from Maiden Erlegh Trust to the Department for Education to open a new school in the East Reading area was successful. The central proposition of the bid was to open a new school that shared the ethos, culture and values of the well-established Maiden Erlegh School in Earley, Reading, Berkshire.

We proudly opened Maiden Erlegh School in Reading to its first Year 7 students in September 2015.  

Values and vision

Maiden Erlegh School in Reading is committed to creating opportunity for students of all abilities to access outstanding education within a secure and caring community. 

East Reading is a diverse community and the school embraces and celebrates this, encouraging tolerance and understanding of all faiths and cultures and empathy with the wider world. There is a strong focus on helping all students to develop socially as well as academically and to become motivated by a strong sense of self-worth.

The school believes that academic achievement flourishes within an ethos of clear expectations and promotes traditional values and high standards of behaviour in all areas of school life. Our overall aim is to ensure that that our students develop a lifelong love of learning and are prepared for adult life as global citizens in a changing world.
