The philosophy of Windlesham is to find what a child is good at and then to use this to build the confidence to tackle those things they are not so good at. We have a ‘can do’ approach to everything and that naturally includes academic study. We are proud that we turn out mature, confident, independent learners who can question the status quo in order to strive for more.
All schools will tell you that they offer a broad and balanced curriculum, but at Windlesham we really do. The core of English, Maths and Science will have more curriculum time allocated than any other subjects. However, we also include French as a core subject which all children learn from the age 4 onwards. Additionally, all children as they progress through the school, will also have the opportunity to learn Spanish and/or Latin. Most will have two languages under their belt when they leave us. Humanities subjects make up the rest of the academic timetable. We are then able to extend the curriculum to include, Music, Art, Design Technology, Food technology, Textiles, Graphics, ICT, and Drama. Outside of the timetabled week children also have the option to study many other languages (Greek, Mandarin, Russian, German, Dutch etc.). They also have the opportunity to take LAMDA and be involved with Debating to name but two of a myriad of the more academic activities.
