St. Edward’s Prep, Reading

Welcome to St. Edward’s Prep, a school that has been providing first-class education for boys in Reading for over 60 years. Our school has an excellent reputation for the quality of its teaching, small class sizes, academic rigour and the traditional values we encourage in a warm and caring environment. As a single-sex school, we also have unparalleled understanding of what makes boys tick, the best ways to engage their interest, and what enthuses them and gives them an appetite to learn. Teaching is tailored to the individual child and, as a result, our pupils achieve great things, academically, on the sports field and in the performing and visual arts.

Our boys leave us articulate and confident all rounders, well equipped and well prepared to move on to the next stage of their academic career at the grammar school or one of the many very good senior schools in the area, with the confidence to embrace all that awaits them.

So take a look around our website or better still come and see us in action.

Mission Statement

We aim to provide a good quality, broad-based education to boys between the ages of 4 and 13 and in so doing aim:

  • To develop the whole child intellectually, morally, socially, spiritually and physically.
  • To respect each child as an individual and to give each child confidence and self-esteem to develop his talents to the full.
  • To develop an enthusiastic ethos towards learning that enables each pupil to progress and develop in a positive manner.
  • To promote a spirit of tolerance and understanding amongst the community.
  • To develop an effective three-way partnership between children, parents and school


St. Edward’s is part of the Wishford Schools group
