Addington School

Home Learning


Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, Addington school is in Phase 2 of re-opening. This means we are gradually increasing the number of pupils in school. If you are a parent or carer and need support or to get in contact with the school, please email helpline@addington.wokingham.sch.uk, where the senior leadership team will review your enquiry and get back to you as soon as possible.  These pages have been created for parents to access learning materials and ideas for home learning.
