    Long time lurker always use this sight posting some info I have..
    this school is completely closed now, two buildings are falling apart and extremely accessible but rotten floors and wasps nests.
    Second building was semi accessible and in perfect condition.
    But would not recommend anyone trying this, as...

    There is not so much security but there is a angry caretaker, who threatened to break our necks.
    Just a word of warning.

    Looks interesting, I've been looking around Reading for some places to explore. I'll go there when I next get the chance and try to post some photos.

    Most likely. School still seems to be in good condition.
    Does anyone know when and why the old ones closed? Seems strange they left them to a extremely dangerous and decaying state when kids could easily reach from playground.

    Do it buddy.
    Be careful. The care taker was the most aggressive person I've met doing this and I got escorted off another site by shotguns at the weekend. Haha

    It's a nice little explore had a look around a few years ago. Was a bit pushed for time on that occasion but it looked like a much larger modern grammar school just behind it was also disused, I could be mistaken. Any ideas on that one?

    Me and 5 of my friends took a look at the school just last weekend. It was quite late at night and we didn't know much about the place so we may of missed a few things.

    I saw reports of being able to get into the actual school with the large sports hall, is this still possible? When we turned up all the doors we found was locked and all the lights was on so we did not want to alarm anything inside.

    We had a look round the building closest to the main school at the back and it was in a really bad shape as described.

    We also found the second building was in really bad shape with some of the plank flooring falling in when we applied slight pressure onto it, but some rooms looked perfect intact from the room we was stuck in.

    Odd that some were in good shape and others really disused? Sounds like a good explore though, beside the angry caretaker?! :s

    "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.[4] The school closed in July 2010.[5]"

    Info on why and when its closed. Courtesy of Wikipedia.
