The Abbey formally launched ARCH this week. ARCH is a hub bringing together individuals and organisations across Reading to offer opportunities and learning experiences for young people and young women in particular.
The ARCH programme will offer a range of activities that develop aspiration and self-discovery, built on innovative community connections.
At the heart of ARCH is a multi-school and Reading-wide partnership. This partnership connects to a network of individuals and organisations with whom we collaborate.
What unites us is the desire to improve the life chances of young people to help them explore and fulfil their potential and live with confidence, purpose and joy.
Our thanks to the schools, community partners, collaborators and associates who joined us for the start of the journey this week. Read more about the activities taking place in this edition of Gateway.
Partner Schools: Reading School, Kendrick School, The Holt, John Madejski Academy and Palmer Park
