Pangbourne is a place where the individual matters. First and foremost, we are a ‘people place’. We are committed to the personal development of our pupils in the fullest sense. They are encouraged to work hard towards academic success and we are proud of the results which they achieve, but just as important is the development of their characters: their confidence and values, their creative and physical skills and their appreciation of who they are and what they can contribute to the world.
Our Flag Values of Kindness, Selflessness, Moral Courage, Initiative, Industry, Resilience and Integrity underpin all we do as a College. They are rooted in our Christian ethos and go a long way to prepare our pupils for life's challenges and the responsibilities of adulthood. Our aim is to equip Pangbournians with the strongest possible foundations for their future.
We know that young people today face many challenges, not least of which is their mental health and wellbeing. We are strongly committed to providing the best pupil welfare individually tailored for each person, and this has been recognised by inspecting and external organisations.
We provide all the other things a good school should: challenging academic curriculum, plenty of sport and co-curricular opportunities, and 230 acres of wonderful Berkshire countryside in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Our small size, focus on the individual and community feel are what make us special.
The only way to experience the authentic Pangbourne is to visit us and meet our people. We are delighted to welcome visitors throughout the academic year and encourage you to contact us and make an appointment.

Pupils flourish in a community which aims, through its Christian ethos, to develop the academic potential of its pupils and their teamwork, leadership, self-discipline and service skills in readiness for their adult lives.ISI Inspection report, november 2019
