Headmaster’s Welcome

Windlesham House School is one of the country’s leading co-educational prep schools offering world-class day and boarding for school children aged from 4 to 13 years in sixty-five glorious acres of the stunning South Downs in West Sussex.

Windlesham was established in 1837 and is one of the oldest prep schools in the country.  The school moved to its current location in 1934 and in 1967 became the first prep school to go co-ed.

We provide children of all academic abilities with an opportunity to reach their personal potential in subjects and activities in which they show promise, from maths and science, languages, the arts and sports. And whilst academic excellence and success are a high priority, we think that it is important to maintain a very caring, family atmosphere at Windlesham through our unique pastoral care.

We have a very talented and totally committed staff that make the happiness, security and personal development of each child their priority every term.

All the staff at Windlesham put every effort into getting to know each child at the school and we all take enormous pleasure in helping our current pupils to flourish in a nurturing environment.

We encourage the children to climb trees and to enjoy their rural surroundings, to succeed academically and to become responsible and thoughtful people so that they leave Windlesham well-rounded and prepared for senior school.

On a personal note, last term saw me notch up my 101st term as a Prep School Headmaster and whilst Rachel and I are enjoying running such an amazing school as much as ever, it is time to handover the baton to someone else.

I am very pleased to advise that the Governors have appointed Ben Evans as the new Headmaster who will lead Windlesham from September 2020. (Please click here for more details.)

Rachel and I are delighted with the news that Ben Evans has been appointed as the next Head of Windlesham. We look forward to getting to know Ben, his wife Alex and their two sons as we begin the all-important handover process during the course of the next academic year.

Windlesham is such a wonderful family orientated environment and I believe that Ben and Alex have all the right credentials to take on the baton from us and lead this amazing school into a very exciting new era.
