Read School is a co-educational day and boarding school for children aged 3-18. There are two boarding houses, one girls’ and one boys’. The boarding provision is well regarded, and pupils speak highly of the diversity of the boarding community and their social lives as boarders. Read is a very small school, with only around 20-25 boarders in total in sixth form. Most of the pupils are local, though there are a small number of international students. Academic attainment is above average and pupils make good progress, though it is not an academic hot-house. Read produces self-confident and mature young adults who are caring for each other and for the wider community – the school places a significant emphasis on charitable initiatives. A range of extracurriculars are offered, including Combined Cadet Force and the Duke of Edinburgh Award. Purpose-built artificial sports pitches and a music centre were recently opened. The school is located in rural Yorkshire.
