A Clear Vision, Strategy and Direction at Reddam House

Reddam House Berkshire opened in September 2015 as an all-through school, divided into three sections – Nursery (Early Learning School), Junior School, Middle School and Senior School. The key duty of the Governing Board is to ensure that each school, and the through-school as a whole, has a clear vision, strategy and direction. In doing so, the Governors are responsible for creating an ethos of high expectation and for monitoring, evaluating and supporting the leadership and management of each school, together with the relevant policies and procedures.
