Head's Up

”With a unique heritage and music running through the heart of the school, St George’s School Windsor Castle is a prep school with an ethos of courage, curiosity, creativity and kindness. We aim to instil a passion for life-long learning and a sense of adventure in all our children, preparing them to be.”

William Goldsmith

Inside Scoop from a current parent

St George’s is a very special school. Dating back centuries and set in the grounds of Windsor castle, it combines tradition and modernity in equal measures.

For us, an all-round, co-ed prep school in walking distance was a must, as were the sports facilities and focus on music, extra-curricular and pastoral care.

After eleven years as parents at St George’s, we believe that both our children have had an exceptional start – they have had the space, time and nurturing environment to mature into confident, caring and responsible children, with a healthy competitive spirit. They both got into their first choice senior school, both competed at a high level in a number of sports, both sang in the chamber choir and participated in numerous school productions.

There is a real sense of community at St George’s and it is impossible to walk around Windsor without bumping into someone from school!

School assemblies are held every half term in St George’s chapel and major school productions and swimming galas are held at Eton College. The choristers board regularly and the older children can flexi-board as much or as little as they wish – which many really love!

This is not a ‘hot house’ prep school. Of course the children work hard, but St George’s is about so much more than academics – it is a true ‘all-round’ school. Many teachers have been there a long time and are very happy. The majority of children start in nursery and stay until either year 6 (when many day schools start) or go through to year 8. St George’s really does prepare children to be responsible and happy adults, as well as helping them to get into the senior school which is right for them.

As Parents, We Love...

  • The confidence that the school instills in the children – they talk, present and perform in public from a very young age and so it becomes second nature.
  • Sport and music and extra-curricular activities – for a relatively small school, St George’s has a real focus on sporting and musical excellence and employs specialists in many different areas. This means that for those children interested in sport, they can compete regularly, and at a high level. Children can study an incredible range of instruments and partipate in the chamber choir from an early age, singing in numerous concerts, in Windsor, in London, and further afield.
  • The caring nature of the school – the staff are exceptionally dedicated and genuine. This reflects in the children who are quietly confident, look out for each other and are very responsible.

Our Children Love...

  • Lots of sports lessons and matches against other schools – which we regularly win
  • Good facilities and a local school so local friends
  • Singing in the chamber choir in the Queen’s chapel
