Windrush Valley School shines in The Times parent power table.
Best Prep School Oxfordshire
Best Prep School Oxfordshire. Windrush Valley School, nestling in the Cotswold countryside is a small school that “punches above its weight.” Indeed, it is the Top Independent Prep School in Oxfordshire, as revealed in the Sunday Times Top Prep School Table published in November 2018. The school was up 40 places to 49th in the table based on SATs results in Reading, Grammar and Mathematics.
Small class sizes, industrious and focused pupils and a hugely dedicated and professional staff are all contributing factors in this success. Windrush Valley School has recently been taken over by the Ingenio Education Group and is rightly regarded as their flagship School. New Headteacher, Amanda Douglas, who has been at the School for fifteen years, was primarily responsible for the Year 6 pupils whose achievement in SATs tests have been recognised in this national league table.
Amanda said: “I am immensely proud of the pupils and staff and their efforts in achieving this excellent result. Being named as the Best Prep School in Oxfordshire is a great achievement. It’s a result that puts us in the top 50 Best Prep School’s in England. Windrush Valley School is non-selective and admission is by interview , so to be ranked in this league table reflects the hard work of all involved.
Interestingly the School does not specifically prepare pupils for these SATs tests and relies on providing a well-balanced and broad curriculum to equip their pupils well for the move to senior schools.
The School is ambitious and is already considering expansion and building a new Foundation Unit classroom to provide more space and in anticipation of increased interest from Oxfordshire families.
In addition, the school offers affordable fees and is committed to make educational excellence accessible to as many children as possible.
