An independent boarding and day school for boys and girls aged 4 to 13, in the Sussex Downs National Park
Windlesham House School is one of the country’s leading independent prep schools, set in a beautiful 65 acre country estate on the South Downs.
The oldest prep school in the country (est. 1837), Windlesham has always led the way in embracing the new.
We were also the first prep school to go co-educational, in 1967, and our long-held policy of no school uniform helps children feel relaxed in their home away from home.
To arrange a private tour with our Headmaster, Ben Evans, please call admissions, on: +44 (0)1903 874701 or email us.
We hold a 100% pass rate to senior schools and 25% of students win scholarships.
We believe happy and motivated children excel academically.
Windlesham House has been rated ‘Excellent’ by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) and offers a wide choice of academic subjects, languages, extra-curricular activities and sports.
Looking back on your childhood, what memories stand out to you? Hopefully days of exploring nature, playing with friends and learning new skills…
Our beautiful 65 acres of grass and woodland, nestled in the foothills of the South Downs allows children to be children, giving space to learn, discover and play.
There’s also plenty of wildlife to spot – including a family of deer, badgers, pheasants and plenty of birds. With over 1000 trees to climb, there’s plenty of scope for a treehouse or den to house adventure seekers.
Newly-built six lane 25m swimming pool (built with 64,000 tiles to hold 500,000 litres of water!)
Sport is a big part of life at Windlesham House – how many schools do you know that have a nine hole golf course on site?
Our rural location is perfect for providing 80+ extra-curricular activities, including five acres of football, rugby, hockey and cricket pitches and tennis and netball courts.
All activities are led by expert coaches whose passion and energy motivates the children immensely.
Windlesham pupils enjoy a huge range of extra-curricular activities – from clay pigeon shooting to ballet, riding and polo, windsurfing and sailing to textiles and chess.
There are also opportunities for the children to enjoy camping trips and survival nights ‘in the wild’!
Houses compete to win the ‘Golden Welly’ by inventing a new game and then beating the other houses at it!
Windlesham House is proud to have been recognised by Apple as a ‘distinguished school’.
One of only 532 Apple distinguished schools around the world, Windlesham has been recognised for continuous innovation in learning, teaching and the school environment.
