My son is in Year 1 at the moment. We would like to move him to a private school. We live in south Reading. Can anyone please give me some suggestions regarding the private schools in Reading area? The nearest is Crosfields, but they have a long waiting list for year1 or year2. I don’t know St Edward's Prep , and Caversham Preparatory School. Both schools are small size . Is there any other school I can consider ?
Thank you.

I wouldn't want to make the way from South Reading to Caversham on a daily basis. Nor to St Edwards really, although it isn't quite as bad.

I’d forgotten another (a friend worked there and children went there for a while).

Waverley school.

Waverley school is too far for us. How is St Edwards? Any experience ?
I just found one at three mile cross, The Vine Christian School. Although it could be full.

I don’t know anyone at St Edwards so I don’t know.

One look at Our Vision on the school's website would have me running for the hills, but chacun a son gout, as the French say with more twiddly bits on :shock: .

Just looked at their site, out of curiously. The school use the ACE syllabus, which I’d run a mile from (from what I’ve seen of it elsewhere). They don’t offer GCSE or A level but an ‘alternative’ which I’ve never seen mentioned in Uni admissions either.

It strikes me as being a ‘church school on serious steroids’. If that’s the sort of school you’d like for your DS that it probably does that very well. From your previous posts I don’t think this is what you are looking for though.
