Windlesham House School is one of the country’s leading independent prep schools, set in a beautiful 68 acre country estate on the South Downs.
The oldest prep school in the country (Est. 1837), Windlesham has always led the way in embracing the new.
We were also the first prep school to go co-educational, in 1967, and our long-held policy of no school uniform helps children feel relaxed in their home away from home.
Our boarding tradition continues, and day children also benefit from the extra advantages and experiences this provides.
We are also flexible about boarding options, to meet the needs of modern parents.
Windlesham’s vibrant but relaxed ethos is often described as “part cosmopolitan London, part welcoming country house” …creating the best of all learning, playing and living environments.
Praised consistently for the depth and breadth of our academic and co-curricular offerings, Windlesham’s forward-thinking approach gives children the space to discover their own talents and interests.
Our ‘total educational experience’ brings out the best in each and every child, and our widely acknowledged excellence in pastoral care creates a nurturing atmosphere for pupils to grow.
This is the school which children themselves want to go to and, as one parent put it, “the school you dream you’d gone to yourself!”
Windlesham is special as everything a child needs to grow and flourish is available on site.
Every pupil is less than a ten-minute walk from lessons, sports equipment, music and arts and trees and wildlife.
There is no need for multiple car journeys shuttling between school, sports clubs and groups – life in the countryside provides Windlesham pupils with the time and space to laugh and play to their heart’s content.
From September 2020 Windlesham will have a new Headmaster, Ben Evans, who will build on Richard Foster’s wonderful legacy and take the school from strength to strength.
“Alex and I are very much looking forward to joining the Windlesham community in September 2020. From our first visit to the school, we were struck by the warm and friendly atmosphere, the tremendous opportunities available to pupils and were hugely impressed by everyone we met.
We are keen to build on the school’s long tradition and outstanding education and be part of its exciting future.” Ben Evans
