Academic success

We are very proud of the academic achievements of our children. Each year the academic profile of a year group is different as the children all have their own individual strengths. We strive to promote individual progress, providing support when necessary and always looking to extend.

For 2016, at KS1 and KS2, the children were assessed in the core subjects. At KS1, Reading continues to be a strength with the continued success of our phonics programme; 93% of children were judged to be reading at a level which met or exceeded national expectations. At KS2, close to 100% of children achieved at a similar level in Reading, Writing and Mathematics. Over 50% of our children achieved a level which exceeded national expectations.

This year, the children were again successful in 11+ entry exams to independent senior schools. We pride ourselves on being a truly independent school preparing children for their next steps in education. We strive to help parents choose a senior school which is most suited to their child. In consequence, children from Windlesham are able to access a wide range of schools both in the maintained and independent sectors. Please see our destination table for more details.

In 2016, from our Year 6 group of 23 children, 55 places were offered this year, with some children being offered places at more than one school. Art and Music scholarships were awarded by Brighton and Hove High School, Burgess Hill Girls School and Roedean. A Headmaster’s award from Roedean was also accepted. All our children should be congratulated on their achievements.
