Pastoral Care

Reading Girls’ School (RGS) is completely committed to providing the highest level of pastoral care, welfare and guidance for every student. The primary aim is to offer a stable environment with a sense of security and belonging from which they can:

  • Develop their social, intellectual, physical and practical skills
  • Participate in community life
  • Become aware of the needs and feelings of others around them
  • Be prepared for their life when they leave school.  

Students join us in Year 7 aged 11-12 and leave us in Year 11 aged 15-16. Each Year group has Pastoral Leader whose primary focus is to make sure every student fulfils their potential by supporting their attendance , behaviour  and academic progress. We have a comprehensive Safeguarding system and Anti-Bullying Policy in place.            

To further enrich and extend students development and wellbeing, we run a House system that focuses on developing our strong sense of community, encourages healthy competition and promotes team spirit. Both students and staff are assigned to one of the five Houses; Austin, Brontë, Curie, Roddick and Seacole. The House names represent women who have had an long lasting, inspirational impact on society. The House badges were designed by the students themselves.
