A little more about Reading
Reading is positioned near two rivers, the Thames and the Kennet, which made it a logical place to establish a settlement. The name Reading derives from Reada Ingas, meaning the people of Reada (The Red One), who was a Saxon Leader in the 6th Century. Reading was captured by the Danes in the 9th Century, who built a fort between the two rivers and it is mentioned in the Domesday Book in 1086.
The Normans built a wooden and then a stone castle, later demolished and given Reading’s position on the main road from London to the West Country, the town flourished in Medieval Times. Henry I built an abbey, completed in 1125 which also drew pilgrims and visitors to the town. He is buried within the grounds of the abbey. Cloth making was the main industry at this time, wool being brought in by boat and then woven and fulled (cleaned and thickened by pounding with water and clay) using wooden hammers powered by water mills. Hence Reading became a home for Fullers, Weavers, Dyers and Tailors. Leather, Gold and boatbuilding were also important industries in the town.The King had transferred his power to the Abbot, but the increasing influence of the merchants saw them appointing the mayor who effectively took charge of the town. This was finalized when Henry VIII closed the abbey and hanged the Abbot for refusing to recognize him as the head of the church.
By the 1600s wool was in decline but other industries such as pin, wire and nail manufacture, brick making and gun making grew in its place. Reading changed hands a number of times during the civil war, often without a fight. The 17th and 18th Centuries saw the opening of Blue Coat and Green Schools, new buildings and markets, the start of a major iron works and a new range of craft industries established. The Kennet Navigation opened and this, along with the river traffic and the location on the coaching route to Oxford, Bath and Bristol all benefitted the town.
In the 19th Century Reading became known for brewing, bulbs and seeds (Suttons) and biscuits (Huntley and Palmer). It grew rapidly in size and civic amenities such as sewers, gardens and libraries established.
In recent years, the city centre has been renewed, the railway station rebuilt and many high-tech industries established. It is one of the largest urban areas in Britain not to hold city status, despite three recent bids.
Our teachers come from the local schools in and around Reading ; from Primary, Junior and Secondary Schools; from across the State, Academy, Grammar and Independent School Sectors; including Reading and Kendrick Schools as well as Caversham Prep School and The Oratory. Reading University and Reading College provide the opportunity for Higher Education.
