Maiden Erlegh has an enviable 50 year tradition of academic success and provides a high quality education for over 1800 students, 440 of whom are in our thriving sixth form at our school in Earley.
In 2011, Maiden Erlegh became the first 'converter' academy in Wokingham Borough, and in 2013 the Government approved our application to open another Maiden Erlegh Secondary School in Reading.
Maiden Erlegh Trust was established in October 2014, when we received
approval to open a new free school to serve the needs of students in
East Reading. Maiden Erlegh School in Reading opened its doors to
students in September 2015.
Maiden Erlegh School is an exceptional school. Our students thrive in a mature, supportive, purposeful and happy environment. They benefit immensely from working with the highly trained, talented and dedicated teachers and support staff and from participating in a wide range of exciting and inspiring extra-curricular activities. As a result they make excellent progress and secure impressive results, but also grow into wonderful young adults. This means that they are equipped to take up their place in the world, whether their first steps are to university (including to some of the most prestigious establishments in the country), to college, onto an apprenticeship or into the world of work.
We opened our doors to our first Year 7 students in September 2015 and our school will eventually grow to 900 students, housed in brand-new, purpose-built accommodation that opened in 2016.
A school, however, is not just the building but the community of students, staff and parents working together to deliver excellent outcomes for young people. We are determined that our students will leave Maiden Erlegh School in Reading well qualified and equipped for the next phase of their life. We do this using the educational expertise, experience and leadership from across the Maiden Erlegh Trust, working in collaboration with our sister school.
