Children at play

It is the combination of our pastoral care and excellent educational, sporting, music and drama facilities that sets Windlesham apart from other schools.

Here at Windlesham there are many areas where children can safely play as ‘children’ indoors and outdoors… including the woods, playgrounds, dens and trees as well as the gardens in 65 glorious acres of land which surround the school.

The House System

Each pupil joins one of six houses led by experienced Houseparents (each house has a female and male Houseparent), who are responsible for looking after the children.

They oversee the the children when they are at school and ensure that our parents, children and teachers are talking to each other at all times about the welfare and happiness of the children.

This ranges from monitoring a child’s relationships with other children and adults in the Windlesham community, to finding a child’s lost items or giving advice on making a birthday party list!

Our Houseparents’ are central to life at Windlesham, because they are responsible for ensuring that information about a child is shared with parents and staff.

Houseparents are the first point of contact with the school when wishing to discuss their child’s welfare.

Houseparents are experienced teachers with a good knowledge of the school, the children in their care and the educational world in general.

Personal Tutor

Each child has twice-weekly meetings with a personal tutor, as well as form and subject teachers on a daily basis.

Alongside the tutor, each child’s Houseparent ensures that he or she is happy at school and developing academically and socially.

Children who attend Windlesham can review their academic efforts, and consequent progress with their personal tutor regularly.

Additionally in a tutorial, our pupils have an opportunity to review their extra-curricular choices and involvement in sport, music, art, drama and activities with a tutor who will get to know them well.
