The Windsor Boys' School is an all-boys upper school and sixth form located on Maidenhead Road in Windsor, Berkshire, England, within the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead Local Authority. The school specialises in the arts.

History

The school used to be called Windsor Grammar School and celebrated its 100th anniversary on 22 September 2008.[3] It moved to the current site in 1939 officially opened by Alexander Cambridge, 1st Earl of Athlone on 18 January 1939.[4]

It welcomed its first non-selective pupils in 1977, completing its transition from a grammar school into a comprehensive school.

On 1 March 2015 the school, together with Windsor Girls' School, became an academy within the Windsor Learning Partnership multi-academy trust.

Houses

All students in the school are affiliated to one of the eight houses:

  • Allen
  • Burgess
  • Burnett
  • Ford
  • Lambdin
  • Ottrey
  • Warwick
  • Woodland

Each of the eight houses is named after an old boy who died in either the First or Second World Wars.[5]

Sports

The Windsor Boys' School has an active sports programme, and is particularly known for its performances in rugby, football and rowing.

Rowing

Windsor Boys' School Boat Club (opened in 1940) is one of the top school rowing clubs in the UK, and among the best sculling schools in the country. Rowers compete at regional and national school events and the club has produced several medallists in international competitions. The club is based in a boathouse situated on the Thames in Windsor, originally built by the Imperial Service College. The club's quad teams have won the prestigious Fawley Challenge Cup at the Royal Henley Regatta seven times in recent history, with the last two wins in 2017 and 2018.[6]
