Reed’s School was originally founded as an orphanage in 1813 by Rev Dr Andrew Reed. Today, it is a successful independent day and boarding school for 650 pupils. However, it remains true to its charitable heritage by being committed to offering excellent educational provision and pastoral care to over 60 disadvantaged children from a range of backgrounds,some of whom have little social, emotional or cultural support.
Since 2014, the school organise a yearly event, the Andrew Reed Debates, that looks at how to overcome childhood deprivation and disadvantage, looking towards education on the first one, and sports in the second one.
Ladbury PR provided key regional and national communication support leading to a wide media coverage of the event in 2015.
