Welcome from the Chairman

For a vulnerable child, receiving the support of the Reed’s Foundation is truly a life-changing opportunity. We work with children who have suffered considerable trauma and provide them with an excellent education. Most importantly, we provide them with specialist pastoral care in a safe and nurturing environment. This instils in them the self-confidence and self-belief needed to succeed and thrive in today’s world.

Our Founder believed wholeheartedly that a good education could transform a child's life and future prospects. We think Rev Andrew Reed would be very happy that over 200 years later we are still transforming lives. https://t.co/0IbdySpCBx
