St George’s School, Windsor Castle, is an IAPS school situated in the heart of the vibrant, historic and cosmopolitan town of Windsor. An integral part of the College of St George and with close links with Windsor Castle, we make the very most of our special location.
St George’s School is in the enviable position of offering an exceptional range of academic, music, sporting and creative opportunities. In one of the most inspiring places in the UK, it provides an outstanding start to a child’s education.
The School is fully co-educational with approximately 340 girls and boys on the roll from Kindergarten to Year 8. There are three main faculties to the school: The Pre-Prep caters for children from Kindergarten to Year 3; the Prep for children from Year 4 to Year 6; and the Senior Prep for children in Years 7 and 8. All three are led by a Head of Faculty, who in turn reports to the Head. There are two classes per year group. The maximum year group size is 40 with no class bigger than 20.
Up to Year 6 Students are taught by class teachers for maths, language and literature (english), social studies, science, inquiry, and PSHE. There are specialist teachers for art, design, drama, music, PE, sport and modern languages. The curriculum followed in the Pre-Prep and Prep is the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Curriculum. There is specialist teaching for all subjects in Years 7 and 8, though students are still under the care of a form tutor who monitors the individual academic and pastoral welfare of each child. Students in the Senior Prep are also guided by an academic tutor.
Many of our families are local, however there is a flourishing boarding community for children from Year 4 upwards. Housed within the main school, a caring team, led by the House Parents, looks after approximately 30 weekly boarders and many more who choose to stay over. It is our intention to develop a consistent and coherent approach to learning and teaching and wellbeing throughout the school, underpinned by a common set of values, culture and ethos, consistent with the age and stage of individual pupils.
At the end of Year 6 or 8, students leave St George’s for a wide range of leading boarding and day senior schools.
