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

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

Boarding at Windlesham truly feels like 'home from home', with comfortable dormitories, social areas and a 'movie and treat' night every Friday!

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 at no extra cost 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.
