3rd Form Induction 31
L6 Form Induction 5
Lower Sixth Induction Day (8)


All pupils joining Reed’s benefit from our tailored induction programme, whether this is at 11+, 13+ or Sixth Form, so that all pupils begin their time at Reed's feeling familiar with the campus and more importantly, their peers.

At 11+ 

All boys are invited to an Activity Day in the June prior to entry.  This enables them to meet key staff, find their way around the school campus and get to know other members of their year group. 

The day before the Autumn Term starts in September, boys have another Induction Day enabling them to settle in before the return of the whole School. Shortly after the beginning of term all First Form boys attend an off-site Activity Team-building Day.  Beyond this, our experienced team of First Form tutors ensures all boys settle into school life as quickly as possible.

At 13+ 

Great care is taken to integrate those who join the School at 13+ (into our Third Form) with the boys already in the School.  Each boy is placed in a House-based tutor group which will contain both new and existing pupils.

In June prior to entry, all boys are invited to attend a 13+ Activity Day which serves as the start of a comprehensive induction process. During this day, the boys undertake a range of team-building activities in their House groups. 

The day before the Autumn Term starts in September, all boys coming into the Third Form attend an Induction Day enabling them to settle in before the return of the whole School. Beyond this, Tutors, Heads of Houses and Heads of Year pay particular attention to helping new boys settle into life at Reed’s.

Sixth Form

There is a carefully designed Lower Sixth Induction Programme for all new and existing pupils. 

During the summer holidays all new students are invited to attend Student Induction; the new girls will all attend for day one with the new boys joining on day two. The days provide an opportunity for students to familiarize themselves with the school site, pastoral staff and facilities. The days are run by the Sixth Form Management Team and supported by wider staff and the Student Leadership Team. There are a range of fun and engaging activities designed to help build friendships. Before term starts all Lower Sixth Students are invited to a year group Induction Day in which they take part in team-building activities.

Beyond this, the Sixth Form team work with tutors to build a sense of belonging and opportunities for integration and as the new term begins. The pastoral team of tutors and the Sixth Form Management Team are on hand to give guidance, care and support to ensure the students feel part of Reed’s by the time their first lessons begin.
