Reed’s School is an independent day and boarding school for boys located in Cobham, Surrey, England, founded by Andrew Reed in 1813 and incorporated by Act of Parliament in 1845 under the presidency of the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Duke of Wellington and the Marquis of Salisbury. The school has a relatively low number of pupils, at only 645; however, numbers continue to rise steadily. It is boys only until the Fifth Form (Year 11) but admits girls in the Sixth Form (Years 12 & 13). The school has historical links with the City of London Corporation and the British Royal Family, a member of which has acted as patron from the school’s earliest days. The current patron is Queen Elizabeth II, who visited the school in 2014 (along with Prince Philip) as part of the school’s bicentennial celebrations. The school’s headmaster is a member of the Headmasters’ and Headmistresses’ Conference (HMC). Former pupils are known as “Old Reedonians”.
