Students at Reddam House benefit from a rich Junior School curriculum, further bolstered by subject specialist teaching staff from Reception onwards.

English is based on the Wordsmith-Pearson programme, and we follow the exceptional Singapore Maths curriculum, a key international approach from Inspired Education.

Our Leadership Programme

The Reddam House Year 6 Leadership Programme empowers our Junior School students to become young leaders, encouraging creativity and boldness of thought. As part of the programme at our Prep School in Wokingham, peer elected student committees lead assemblies, take on charitable activities, learn how to use new technology, and hold leadership positions within sports and the arts.

Alongside this runs Sixceed - a new initiative designed to develop skills such as real-world problem solving and communication.

Our School Council compliments both of these activities and supports our Junior curriculum, promoting the student voice across the Junior School and helping our pupils to problem solve creatively and gain confidence in their ability to navigate challenges.

CHEX Programme

Our Challenge and Extension initiative supports pupils to extend their learning, using Surface Pros to provide specialised online content and a fresh approach to homework. 

Results from this initiative show that it is just as powerful for students who find a subject tricky, as it is for those who are ready to extend their learning.

Languages in Junior School

Learning another language brings with it a multitude of skills, including problem-solving, memory development and the ability to become a more flexible and thoughtful learner. 

From Reception to Year 6, Junior students at Reddam House learn French,  taught by a specialist teacher once a week. This is a highly anticipated part of the week for our students, who respond well to the engaging and interactive manner of the lessons both in the classroom and during special French days throughout the year.
