SCHOOLS

The Piggott School

Twyford Road Wargrave Reading Berkshire RG10 8DS

“The Piggott School is a school with a Church Foundation. This reflects the School’s history and the involvement of The Church of England in the education of young people in their communities; it does not mean our pupils or their families have to have a Christian faith, or any religious faith. But everyone is expected to respect the teachings of the Christian faith. Gospel values place great emphasis on care and respect, on fairness and forgiveness; there is an emphasis on our responsibilities as fellow human beings, as well as our rights as individuals. Above all we believe in the potential of each pupil to succeed, drawing upon their innate talents and resources.”
