Admission to Reach Academy Feltham is co-ordinated by the London Borough of Hounslow. Applications for places at the school should be made using the Common Application Form (CAF) and applications for ‘in-year’ admissions (once the school year has started) should be made to London Borough of Hounslow.
How big are the year groups?
We have 60 places in each year and our year groups will not grow bigger than this, all the way to Year 13. In each year group there are two classes of 30 pupils.
How are particular talents catered for, e.g. music, art?
In addition to a broad and balanced curriculum which includes dedicated PE lessons, we offer a range of extra-curricular clubs for pupils that include music, arts and sports. We are committed to helping all of our pupils find and realise their full talents.
Is it a private school?
No, Reach Academy Feltham is a state school, free for parents and funded by the government. It is an academy, and so it is independent of local authority control.
Can I visit the school?
Yes, we would be delighted to welcome you to Reach whenever was convenient. Please call 020 3551 9305 or email email@example.com to arrange a tour.
Do you have a waiting list?
Yes, the school is full and we have a waiting list coordinated by the London Borough of Hounslow.
Can my child have the option of packed lunch?
No, we believe that eating together is an integral part of the experience at Reach. Our food is outstanding, fresh every day with an ever-changing menu, and pupils eat in family service with their teachers. Everyone who visits the school and our pupils comment on how excellent the food is.
How long is the school day?
For pupils in Primary, the school day runs from 8.30am until 3pm or 3.15. For pupils in Secondary, the day runs from 8am until 4pm. We have a longer school day which enables us to do more English and Maths and retain a broad and balanced curriculum, and there are after school clubs and activities from 4-5pm.
How is the school different to other schools?
Our school offers the very best education and is unique in a number of ways.
All-through – Our school teaches pupils from Reception all the way through to Year 13.
Small – Our school is small, with only 60 pupils in each year, ensuring strong personal relationships.
High aspirations – Every pupil works towards top grades and the opportunity to succeed at a top university.
Teaching – Our committed teachers do their utmost to ensure that pupils realise their potential.
Expectations – We expect all pupils to work hard and be respectful of others at all times.
Do you follow the same curriculum as other schools?
Our curriculum is based on what we know it will take for our pupils to get top grades at GCSE and A-level, and so is rigorous and challenging. We do the same mix of subjects as other schools, including French, Science, Humanities, Creative Arts and PE, but we also have 30 minutes of reading every day and Philosophy and Logic lessons.
