Trevelyan Middle School is a comprehensive middle-deemed-secondary[3] school in Windsor, Berkshire, England, within the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead Local Authority. The school is attended by approximately 600 boys and girls aged between nine and thirteen.

History[edit]

The school was officially opened on 26 March 1930 as the New Windsor Council School by Sir Charles Trevelyan, the President of the Board of Education. It was renamed Trevelyan School in his honour in 1954.

Since 1979, it has been a co-educational comprehensive middle school, catering for pupils between the ages of nine and thirteen.

In 1998, the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead assumed responsibility for the school from the former Royal County of Berkshire Council.

In 2002 the school moved from its Green Lane home for the previous 72 years to a new site in Wood Close.

In 2007, Trevelyan Middle School became an associate Arts College, linked to The Windsor Boys' School.

Classes and Houses[edit]

Trevelyan Middle School has nineteen classes of students, arranged in four year groups of four or five classes each. Year 5 is the youngest year group in the school, and year 8 the eldest. Students belong to one of the school's four houses:

  • Lancaster
  • Stuart
  • Tudor
  • York

Prefect System[edit]

Lunchtime is overlooked by a team of 16 Prefects, 2 Senior Prefects, 2 Deputy Head Boys, 2 Deputy Head Girls, a Head Boy and a Head Girl, all from year 8. They have 1 lunchtime duty a week. To become a Prefect, the applicant must send a letter to the Head of Year. Possible Head Boy and Head Girl contenders are interviewed by a panel of senior staff. They then announce the new Prefects by the end of the year.
