Aims & Ethos

St George’s School Windsor Castle is a co-educational prep school for children aged between 3 and 13. Most of our 350 pupils are day pupils, with weekly and flexi boarding also available for girls and boys from Year 4 upwards. The Choristers of St George’s Chapel are weekly boarders, allowing them to combine the additional commitments of being part of the Chapel Choir with being full members of our School community.

The school is a happy, vibrant place, where children come in each day with a big smile on their faces and where the excitement of learning and discovering new things is achieved in an atmosphere of mutual support, care for the individual and traditional prep school values. We seek to be a happy, caring and stimulating community where an ambitious academic curriculum, excellent pastoral care and a rich breadth of opportunities combine to provide a first-class education for every pupil. 


Our objectives are:

  • To develop happy, self-confident children;
  • To inculcate a love of learning and develop enquiring minds;
  • To identify and nurture in each child their individual skills and talents to enable them to achieve their potential;
  • To provide high quality education which fully prepares children for the next stage of their learning;
  • To develop individuals who respect others and who understand the value of good manners and courtesy;
  • To engender in all pupils a sense of pride in their school, a respect for their environment and an involvement with the wider community;
  • To provide opportunities in creative and performing arts; 
  • To provide sporting and physical activities and an understanding and awareness of teamwork and sportsmanship.
