    • At Prospect we are committed to continuous improvement and the raising of educational standards. As a Specialist College in Sports and ICT we aim to build on our current successful practice of developing young people who are physically, emotionally and educationally healthy. The concept of ‘personal best’ is used to develop students who are determined to succeed with whatever academic, sporting or personal goal they set. We are very proud to be able to offer the widest range of learning options of any school in Reading, backed up by an excellent welfare structure. We encourage and project an ethos of mutual respect and support where the diversity of people’s backgrounds is used to enrich our community and everyone is treated with equal value and care. Staff are committed to working in partnership with students and parents to widen perspectives, raise expectations, give encouragement, offer guidance and help every child achieve their personal best. We celebrate and recognise all types of achievement to build self-belief and self-esteem and to create an enjoyable and rewarding learning atmosphere. We are rightly proud of our school and students and aim to give you a flavour of what we have to offer, but in order to fully appreciate for yourself the fantastic facilities and opportunities, I would encourage you to visit us to see the school in action for yourself.
