The Windsor Boys' School is a 13-19 boys' school which seeks to retain the best of a traditional ethos based upon over 100 years of achievement, with a modern, forward- thinking approach that prepares young men for success in the 21st century.

We provide our students with a variety of challenging opportunities for learning, development and growth. They will learn that personal and social development involves taking responsibility not only for themselves, but also for all those around them. Our success will be measured both by first-class examination results and also the extent to which we provide an environment in which students are happy and can flourish.

To achieve this, we aim to be a school where:

• every student has the opportunity to reach his full potential through lessons that are academically challenging and engaging;

• there is an enthusiasm for learning, an encouragement of effort and a celebration of success;

• fairness, hard work and discipline are respected by all;

• there is outstanding provision for extra-curricular activities;

• students feel valued and are an active member of the community;

• students are well-equipped for life in a diverse and changing society.

Our curriculum is broad and balanced offering learning across the full range of subjects, and personalised appropriately to meet individual needs. Although there is a large core of traditional subjects on offer, we deliver high quality STEM pathways and vocational qualifications too. The school delivers a very positive value added score and the core subjects are consistently above average for pupil progress: the school’s progress 8 measurement is very strong and places us significantly above average for boys’ progress nationally. Students’ attainment and progress in mathematics and in other subjects at GCSE is outstanding, which is quite an achievement considering the school has a comprehensive intake.

At A level a very wide range of academic and vocational subjects are successfully delivered. There have always been high rates of university entrance. This is now the school of choice for many in the area both for achieving academic success and for its famous sporting prowess.

The school places great emphasis on developing the quality of teaching and increasing standards for learning. All teachers contribute to real action research as part of their professional development and often work across subject teams. For newly qualified teachers there is a strong programme of support from mentors and team leaders, as well as timetabled training sessions. For aspiring leaders we run programmes to enable them to experience middle leadership and senior leadership and gain appropriate qualifications. The school has a long history of working with GTPs and we are now a lead provider for Schools Direct.

Our high quality co-curricular provision provides tremendous opportunities for all, especially in the arts and in sport, as well as a wide range of more specialised activities, like a physics society, debating club and Duke of Edinburgh awards. Students represent the school at national and international level. The school is famous for sport and, above all, rowing. The school has a boat house on the nearby Thames and our under 18s have achieved tremendous success in recent years. Football has also seen real growth, culminating in the U16 team winning the national school’s FA cup. Similarly our rugby teams play against the major public schools and tour to Australia and Canada. Athletics, hockey, squash and cricket are also strong. We have a sports pavilion, extensive playing fields including a large AstroTurf pitch, and tennis courts.

The school is also a specialist arts college and consistently gains the Artsmark Gold award. Drama is famously good and ambitious often collaborating with girls from Windsor Girls' School. There is an excellent drama studio and a performing arts studio. Imaginative cross-curricular work in a languages and drama collaboration has been praised by Ofsted. Music is formidable – we have every kind of instrumental tuition and bands including a full orchestra, jazz band, close harmony singers and a strong choir that has performed at the Albert Hall. Our very successful band, famous for playing for the Queen, enjoyed a first in playing at the International Network of School Leaders in Beijing.

We have high expectations of student behaviour and expect good working relationships between teacher and student. The behaviour of pupils in the school is genuinely good and the atmosphere is relaxed and civilized - boys look you in the face and smile at their teachers. The strong professional relationship between teachers and pupils creates a safe learning environment which enables students to be successful in their learning.

The school was last inspected by Ofsted in May 2023 and was given a resounding ‘good’ judgement.

The school is a founding member of The Windsor Learning Partnership and is an academy in a multi academy trust with Windsor Girls’ School, and other local schools. Plans to expand further will afford many opportunities for staff and students alike and shape the next stage of the school’s development.
