Hello mums,
We are planning to move to reading by end of this year, my daughter starts school next September, so we wanted to move to a place with outstanding Primary /Secondary schools.
Can you please suggest which areas are good in terms of schools, living and raising kids.

Many Thanks mums.

All the tilehurst primary schools are good
Local Secondary schools are all on a similar level ( I.e all as good/bad as each other) - unless you want grammar schools but entry is ( I think ) quite competitive - the two main ones are in Reading itself rather than the suburbs
South of Reading is a less wealthy area and schools reflect this

Burghfield/Mortimer way. Two nice villages outside Reading great bus and rail links to Reading. Great community spirit even in Covid times.

All primaries are good. I literally couldnt decide and the Willink high school is one of the top in Berkshire.
