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

History[edit]

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 and welcomed its first non-selective pupils in 1977, thus making the 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[edit]

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.[citation needed]
