Ranked 34th in the UK out of over 20,000 Prep and primary schools and ‘Best in Berkshire’ by The Times, Waverley is a co-educational, private school and Nursery for children aged 3 months to 11 years. Waverley has also been rated ‘Excellent’ in our recent school inspection. Located in a rural setting on the outskirts of Wokingham, Waverley offers exceptional academic performance combined with a warm, nurturing, family-friendly environment.
Small Class Sizes
Waverley pupils enjoy small class sizes, single-form entry (one class per year group) and a superb pupil/teacher ratio. This enables every child at Waverley to receive an individual education which empowers them to be comfortably challenged and academically achieve to the best of their ability.
Tailored Preparation for Entry to the Senior School of Choice
When Waverley pupils leave us at the end of Year 6, we pride ourselves in knowing that our pupils move on to the Senior School which is right for them. Testament to this is that all our recent Year 6 leavers have been offered places at their chosen secondary school, including grammar schools and prestigious independent day and boarding schools, many of these being with scholarships.
Combining Traditional and Modern Teaching
Waverley prides itself on offering an education which combines traditional and modern teaching methods. We focus heavily on traditional numeric, writing and reading skills but we enhance pupils’ learning with the latest technology, including every pupil being given their own Chromebook from Year 3 onwards for their time at Waverley. In addition, we place great emphasis on outdoor learning, sports and wellbeing. Our Forest School is a popular part of our curriculum with other lessons taking place outdoors as much as possible.
Offering Care 51 Weeks a Year – for Busy Parents
Care is available to pupils 51 weeks a year, Monday to Friday, 7.30am to 6pm. Outside of the core school day, we offer Breakfast Club, After School Club and Holiday Club. All our clubs are managed by our in-house Waverley Extended Hours Team with specialist coaches visiting our school for activities such as fencing, Scrumys rugby and tennis.
Waverley Nursery – An award-winning, educational Nursery in a rural setting
Our Nursery offers outstanding care and education for children from 3 months to 5 years. With a strong focus on outdoor learning through play, our children move on to school having received a thorough preparation in writing, numbers and phonics. Waverley Nursery offers a seamless transition for entry into our Prep School.
