Our current Five-Year Strategy Brochure sets out our vision for the next five years (2019-2024).
The previous five years saw evolution in all areas of the School, with a focus on delivering excellence and innovation in teaching and learning, expansion of the co-curricular opportunities, and provision of higher education & careers programmes. We improved the teacher/pupil ratio and recruited exceptional staff in all areas. At the same time, we developed the infrastructure of the School with enhanced facilities in sport, art, drama, IT, science, and the Sixth Form. We have been delighted with the improved outcomes: our Upper Sixth has enjoyed record success in securing places at first-choice universities, including elite institutions in the UK and the USA; our pupils have achieved the highest ever GCSE results in three of the last four years; a record number have represented the School in co-curricular activities; and the number of applications for places at Reed’s has grown substantially at all three entry points.
Of course we must guard against complacency, and so it is imperative that we continue to find ways to improve that are consistent with the School’s aims and core values. The focus of our current Five-Year Strategy is to equip our pupils with what we have defined as the three dimensions of a futureproof education: values, skills and knowledge. Together, these elements will enable our pupils to lead fulfilled lives and also provide them with the ability to adapt to an ever-changing societal and economic landscape.
This strategy represents the culmination of a year-long series of consultations with pupils, parents, staff, governors and alumni and outlines the 12 major objectives we have for the School over the next five years. Strategic working parties have been established to deliver these objectives which will bring lifelong benefits for our pupils.
