There is plenty we can tell you about Windlesham House, but it is better to visit yourself.

We do things differently at Windlesham House

As the oldest prep school in the country (est 1837) and the first prep school to become co-educational (1967), we have always led the way in embracing the new. 

We are progressive and innovative in our ethos and approach while embracing our traditions and rich history. Focussing on the wellbeing of every child, each benefits from a first class and distinctive education full of exciting opportunities and experiences in the glorious South Downs; the grounds are alive with children building dens, climbing trees, playing golf and collecting chicken eggs.

Our outstanding programmes, including World Languages and Sports Academies, have earned us recognition across all aspects of the education we offer and provide exciting opportunities for girls and boys aged 4-13.

Recently a parent said, “there is no place like your school, I have loved watching my child blossom.”

We are delighted to be laying the foundations for the future with our Green Plan and innovative leadership Diploma and Futures Programme for Years 7 & 8.


″Windlesham House continues to thrive and nurture future generations of exceptional children.″

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.

Our long held policy of no school uniform (within reason of course!) helps children feel relaxed in their home away from home.

There is 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.
