MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR OF EDUCATION

Every child is an individual and at Windsor School, our ethos ‘foundations of character’ recognises that when immersed in our rich and creative curriculum, all pupils will go on to achieve more than they ever thought possible.

Our holistic approach provides a genuinely rounded education that goes beyond academic excellence. We empower each and every one of our children to be leaders, whether that be leaders of their own learning or leaders within our school community. We strongly believe that the pupil’s voice is the key to success.

Through innovative teaching initiatives, we instil a sense of purpose amongst our learners. Everyone has the chance to achieve at their own pace. It is this blend of academic excellence and rich experiences outside of the classroom that ensures success for all. As a result, our school community is rich with confident, emotionally intelligent children in every part of this bustling campus.

Here your child can be part of a school community that places them at the centre and invests in their individual interests as well as broadening their horizons. Our goal is for your child to leave our school feeling proud of everything that they have achieved, equipped with the skills to go on to experience further successes wherever in the world that may be.
