Planning a visit to the Great Park? Here are some tips to help you get the most from your visit.
Set in woodland, adjacent to Windsor Great Park, Bishopsgate’s grounds are spacious and inspiring. They strive for outstanding pastoral and the highest standards of teaching and learning. The children enjoy a wide range of opportunities in sport, music, drama and the arts. In order to thrive and develop effectively, children require an environment that provides them with numerous opportunities. The opportunities at Bishopsgate, where their beautiful surroundings are accompanied by excellent facilities and a broad curriculum, provide pupils with the perfect setting to discover a love for learning and develop skills that will form the base of a happy and successful future.
Bishopsgate School has a desire to be successful and is balanced with a need to be happy and feel secure. Confidence is equally matched against a need to be humble and consider the feelings of others. As well as developing a robust work ethic that gives the children the best academic base upon which they are encouraged to strengthen and improve, the children enjoy participating in sport, music, drama, the arts and an exciting programme of extra-curricular activities. They are extremely proud of their pupils’ achievements in terms of academic results as well as the well-rounded individuals they become during their time at Bishopsgate.
Lower & Middle School
The children, from the age of 3, learn in a bright, spacious, self-contained and well-equipped building staffed by caring and dedicated teachers and assistants.
Strong specialist teaching is offered in all key subjects and is delivered in well-resourced and modern classrooms. Bishopsgate’s curriculum focuses not just on the academic subjects, but ensures that children who are good at Art, Drama, PE and Design Technology have their potential properly recognised.
The Perfect Setting
The children learn and play in a beautiful woodland setting. Their grounds provide a wonderful learning resource and there are acres of space for healthy play.
