Our inspiring and stimulating curriculum is delivered within a nurturing, supportive and positive environment, and includes; literacy, language, mathematics, science, technology, human & social, sports, art and music. In addition, adventure trips and foreign residential weeks away, further enrich the curriculum and the children’s life-experience.

All children regularly play in the school band, perform in musicals on stage, compete in public speaking competitions and sing in the choir. Our sporting pedigree has resulted in children competing at the highest level in swimming, athletics and cross country. For the last 10 years, our pupils have competed at a national level at the Independent Schools Association championship.

We also provide a comprehensive after-school programme in which children enjoy a wide range of additional activities, including; cooking, first aid, forest school, horse whispering and cycling proficiency.

Latest parent reviews

“Windrush Valley School is top rated for all the best reasons and punches well above its weight. The achievements made by the children in this small and welcoming environment are unique and will serve them well in the future. My daughter, now in her final year, has been there since she was 3 and has been surrounded by well balanced peers and supportive teachers throughout. Whilst we’ll be sad to move on we can’t think of a better place for her to have started her education.”
