It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to our new website and I invite you to explore this website, and the websites of our schools, to learn more about the Trust.
Our Trust motto is “schools for the community, schools as a community” as our aim is that every school in our Trust, whilst espousing our values and ethos, and having a core of common policies and procedures, will serve its own community’s needs in a bespoke way and also create a feeling of community within its own school. In that way all the potential and talents of every child and every member of staff will be nurtured.
Maiden Erlegh Trust was established in October 2014, when we received approval to open a new free school to serve the needs of students in East Reading. Maiden Erlegh School in Reading opened its doors to students in September 2015.
On the 1st July 2017 we welcomed our first Primary stage school into the Trust, Great Hollands Primary School, Bracknell, and the Trust is poised for a most exciting future.

Academic excellence, while central to the life of the school, is most certainly not the whole picture at Maiden Erlegh. Wider opportunities are provided for our students. For example, all students have the opportunity to visit Tirabad, the school’s jointly owned Outdoor Education Centre in Wales. This activity centre provides an ideal environment for students to develop the skills of leadership, problem-solving and working in teams – essential skills they will need to cope with the rapidly changing world they will face in adult life. Foreign language exchanges are also arranged with France and Germany, and cultural exchanges with Italy and America. Students have also participated in World Challenge expeditions to Peru, Java, Tanzania, Ecuador and Zambia. An increasing number of students take part in the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme.
We specialise in initial teacher training and in providing bespoke training and support packages for schools looking to improve upon their Ofsted judgement whether it be to move from 'requires improvement' to 'good', or from 'good' to 'outstanding'.
A school, however, is not just the building but the community of students, staff and parents working together to deliver excellent outcomes for young people. We are determined that our students will leave Maiden Erlegh School in Reading well qualified and equipped for the next phase of their life. We do this using the educational expertise, experience and leadership from across the Maiden Erlegh Trust, working in collaboration with our sister school.
Our students thrive in a supportive, purposeful and happy environment. They benefit immensely from working with the highly trained, talented and dedicated teachers and support staff and from participating in a wide range of exciting and inspiring extra-curricular activities. As a result they make excellent progress and secure impressive results, but also grow into wonderful young adults.
At Maiden Erlegh Chiltern Edge we are committed to helping our students realise their dreams by equipping our young people with the knowledge, skills, understanding and confidence to achieve success.
Expectations of ourselves, our students and the wider community of the school are high. We provide a rich and varied curriculum as well as an extensive range of extra-curricular and sporting activities.
