Our home is the historic London Road campus of the University of Reading. It is vibrant, exciting and centrally placed, being near to London, Heathrow Airport and other transport hubs.

Our visitors enjoy our beautiful cloisters and green quadrangle. Our buildings, while historic, are entirely renovated to suit a modern educational environment.

Our lecture series, Get Into Teaching sessions, NQT events, Music evenings, Stargazing nights, book signings and meet-the-author occasions are always popular and immensely enjoyable.
