WINCHESTER HOUSE SCHOOL
Winchester House, the day and boarding prep school in Brackley, is celebrating after being awarded an ‘Excellent’ rating by the Independent Schools Inspectorate.
This is the highest award available as an outcome of the inspection following the inspectors’ visit in January. The report focuses on the achievement of the pupils, including both academic development and personal development.
Head teacher Antonia Lee pictured below said: “I am incredibly proud of this wonderful assessment of life and learning at Winchester House.
“The result is not only a testament to the hard work, dedication and passion of our magnificent team but also to the pupils throughout the school who continue to push themselves to thrive in all areas of school life.
“I would also like to thank Winchester House families for their ongoing support and efforts in helping make our school community what it is.”
Inspectors visited the school over a week, joining lessons and meeting with staff and pupils. “I was particularly thrilled to see such positive observations on Winchester House children throughout the report” said Ms Lee.
“We have high academic aspirations at the school of course, but to receive such positive feedback on well-rounded Winchester House pupils was very satisfying and a celebration of the rich curriculum and broad aspirations for learning we have here.”
Dr Anthony Wallersteiner, head of The Stowe Group of which Winchester House is part, added: “Winchester House is the first school in The Stowe Group to have a full ISI inspection since last year’s merger. I am delighted that Winchester House has been awarded the ultimate accolade of being excellent in all respects.
“This is a resounding endorsement of a Winchester House education and testimony to the professionalism, pride and hard work of pupils, teachers, and support staff.”
