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

Children at play

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

At Windlesham House, 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 two houseparents), 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 House 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 House, because they are responsible for ensuring that information about a child is shared with parents and staff. They are the first point of contact with the school when wishing to discuss their child’s welfare. As experienced teachers, they have detailed and excellent knowledge of the school, the children in their care and the educational world in general.

Form Tutor

Each child has a daily meeting with their form tutor, who makes sure they are happy and ready for each day.  They also monitor their academic progress and are the first point of contact for parents.

Alongside their tutor, each child’s houseparent ensures that they are happy at school and developing academically and socially. Children who attend Windlesham House can review their academic efforts, and consequent progress with their personal tutor regularly.

Additionally in a tutorial session, our pupils have an opportunity to review their co-curricular choices and involvement in sport, music, art, drama and activities with their tutor who will make sure they have the right balance and are happy.
