About Maiden Erlegh Chiltern Edge

Maiden Erlegh Chiltern Edge is a small school but with a big heart. Since joining the Maiden Erlegh Trust in 2018 the school has seen a marked change in its fortunes and is now known for its calm classrooms, strong focus on behaviour and well-developed teaching and learning. There are weekly CPD sessions that focus on pedagogy along with regular whole school CPD meetings as the school works hard to develop itself on a journey to outstanding. The staff body is small but highly committed and staff absence rates are incredibly low. Whilst our 2017 OFSTED report records an “inadequate” rating we have recently written to OFSTED to encourage an inspection, so confident are we of a “Good” rating.

The site is well spaced out and set in a semi-rural location surrounded by farmland, there is plenty of parking on site and the village of Sonning Common is served by the number 25 bus route from central Reading
