Our admissions process


Visit Windlesham

Our first step is to invite you in to visit the school and be shown around by some of our current pupils, giving you an inside glimpse into what life at Windlesham. Feel free to ask them plenty of questions - they love to chat about their adventures and what life as both a day and boarding student at Windlesham is really like, giving you a good understanding of the school.

Finding out a bit more

For us to find out more about your child, we will request CAT4 scores to give us an indication of their current academic levels and a recent school report for insight into how we could support them as a pupil at Windlesham both in an educational and pastoral sense.

Taster day

The next stage is to register and then we’ll arrange a taster day or overnight stay (depending on whether boarding is an option) and your child will be allocated a host from the same house. Their host will ensure they are happy and experiencing all parts of the school.


Places are offered on the basis of the 'Taster' visit, the informal assessment, a School Report and CAT4 scores (if available). If an offer is made a completed contract and deposit will be required to confirm a place.

Place confirmed

Once a place is confirmed entry is usually the beginning of the Autumn term in September, the Spring term in January or the Summer term in April - in certain circumstances we do accept applications at other times during the acadmeic year.


The admissions team will provide all the details you need to ensure your families transition to Windlesham is a smooth one. We have an on-line portal that provides easy access to the information you need and our team are available to answer any questions you might have.
