Nestled in 60 glorious acres on the South Downs, the magnificent architecture, the stunning grounds and unparalleled facilities make Windlesham a wonderful educational experience.
Academic excellence is at the core of everything we do. Every child is encouraged and given the freedom to fulfil their potential, whether for an academic, sporting, art or music scholarship or to assimilate the curriculum confidently. Whatever the age of entry, our mission is to provide Windlesham pupils with the academic ability and self-belief which will enable them to relish new challenges and attain their individual goals for the future with total confidence.
Small classes enable our teachers to give each child the nurturing they need in order for them to reach their full potential. Pupils are taught in a mixture of sets and forms, so that they learn with others and have the security and appropriate challenges to develop.
Life is busy and fun at Windlesham and we are looking for children with a can-do attitude and who are willing to embrace and try all that is on offer. Children are encouraged to play a musical instrument, sing, act, try a new sport and join in with the debates. As well as achieving academic excellence, building confidence and self-esteem is paramount.
Scholarships at Windlesham
At Windlesham, we believe that excellence should be recognised and scholarships are awarded to children who show outstanding potential and we offer a tailored programme of provision and support for scholars to enhance, develop and inspire their particular area of talent.
Academic, All-Rounder, Art, Drama, DT, ICT, Music and Sport scholarships are available for Year 6 entry. Scholarships are held each Spring Term and are available to external and internal candidates for entry into Year 6.
The tests are designed to focus on potential rather than on current achievement. They will not be based on any specific curriculum but will be age appropriate. There will be no specific preparation necessary as the tests are designed to assess underlying intellectual capacity rather than learned responses. Up to 12 scholarships will be awarded to a maximum of 10% of fees. A successful candidate will show a high level of ability across all areas tested including the interviews. Scholarships awarded to successful candidates will commence in the Autumn Term following the Spring Term assessments.
Applicants should contact Kate Goodwin, Director of Studies for an application form.
