    This was a permission visit and a lucky on the off chance explore!
    The school is being looked after by Camolot who are paid to put residents inside closed buildings to look after it. We managed to get in by talking to one of the residents!

    The Elvian School was an independent school in Reading, Berkshire, United Kingdom run by the Licensed Trade Charity as a coeducational, nondenominational Christian school. It was previously the Catholic boys' school Presentation College, Reading, until it went into administration in 2004. In March 2010 it was announced that the school would close at the end of the academic year.

    The school opened in 1931 as Presentation College, Reading, an independent boys' day school run by the Presentation Brothers. In May 2003 the Presentation Brothers made the highly controversial decision to close the school the following summer; however, due to the "Save Pres" campaign by staff and students, the Presentation Brothers reversed the decision and the school was transferred to a trust. However, in mid-2004 the school went into administration and was taken over by the Licensed Trade Charity and became the Elvian School.

    In January 2010, staff and parents of pupils were sent letters stating that the future of the school was unclear and that the feasibility of continuing to operate was being considered during a consultation period. On 3 March, a further letter and announcement by the school's Director of Education, Ian Mullins, stated that the consultation had unanimously agreed that the school could not run into the 2010/11 academic year.
    The school closed in July 2010.
