Education in the Royal Borough


62 schools in the Royal Borough provide education for around 19,000 pupils in 3 nursery schools, 45 schools for primary age children, 13 secondary schools (including 4 middle schools) and 1 special school.

13 schools have nursery classes and 6 have resource units for children with special education needs.

Local schools are organised in two different ways. In Windsor there are first, middle and upper schools with transfers between the schools at the ages of 9 and 13 years. In the rest of the Royal Borough, children attend primary or infant and junior schools before transferring to a secondary school at the age of 11.

School Ofsted Ratings

To see Ofsted's current ratings for all RBWM schools, please see the download below. Alternatively, the Ofsted School Data Dashboard provides a snapshot of school performance at Key Stages 1, 2 and 4. The dashboard can be used by school governors and by members of the public to check the performance of the school in which they are interested.


The curriculum is the sum of everything your child experiences in school. All pupils aged 5 to 16 follow the National Curriculum.

Visit the National Curriculum website for a more detailed look at how the Curriculum is broken down.
