It was established in 1962 as a Comprehensive school secondary school to serve the families of Wokingham. Today it is the lead school of Maiden Erlegh Trust, having converted to an academy in 2011.[2] It has capacity for 1,788 students but currently has 1,824 students on roll, over 400 of whom are in its sixth form.
