Boarding at Windlesham School

Boarding

Most of the 300 boys and girls at Windlesham are boarders and are given responsibility at an early age, and treated with respect. Expectations are high, but always centred on the individual abilities of each child. Our learning support, pastoral care and strong moral guidance, ensure that every child gains the most from this unique environment.

Busy days are so well planned that many of the normal stresses and strains of life are forgotten. Their day begins with a leisurely breakfast together with teachers. Some may have already practised a musical instrument or played with friends before eating then it’s just a couple of minutes walk to the classroom.

At the end of the day, a whole variety of activities, from windsurfing and cookery to tennis and art keep them happily engaged not a Playstation in sight. The children then complete their prep together, have supper and then enjoy some free time. Bedtime and lights out is always a warm, familiar routine.

Parents are always welcome to visit and stay in regular contact with Houseparents or other members of staff. Children can call home or keep in touch by email. Overseas boarders are well-catered for with their travel arrangements carefully co-ordinated by the school office. Windlesham is also flexible in weekend arrangements for those living closer to the school.
