Prep Boarding
Prep Day


Welcome to Pre-Prep - the smaller, newly renovated school for 4-7 year-olds.

Here younger pupils are exposed to a wealth of experiences from digital learning, cookery and Spanish to our ‘Forest School’ in the National Park.

The Prep and Pre-Prep community are close-knit, with interaction with older children encouraged.

Prep Boarding

We understand there’s no place like home, but at Windlesham, we’re proud to provide a sense of family and comfort for our boarders.

And from breakfast to classrooms, sports fields to treehouses - everything is accessible within a couple of minutes.

We're also extremely proud of our strong parent communities across the UK & Internationally.

Prep Day

It’s important to us that our day pupils are treated no differently to their boarding classmates and, apart from sleeping at home, their day-to-day schedule is very similar.

Day pupils are welcome to enjoy breakfast and supper at school and take part in a huge range of sports and extra-curricular activities with their peers.

A breath of fresh air

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.
