Windlesham House School is committed to educating children to engage in social responsibility. We aim to develop well-rounded and purposeful young people who thrive with confidence, character and resilience and make a positive contribution in society.
A wonderful new mosaic of a dove is now complete and will take pride of place in the Windlesham House School Chapel in the autumn as our legacy for INSPIRE – a movement inspiring a new generation of peacemakers and peace-builders in our schools and communities. The INSPIRE Peace dove has been created by children from a variety of year groups from different backgrounds and diverse cultures. It will act as a wonderful symbol of peace building in this centenary year as the nation marks 100 years since the end of World War One. Headmaster, Richard Foster and Justin Blake signed the INSPIRE Peace Charter.
INSPIRE in Independent Schools
Windlesham House School was delighted to host the exciting launch of INSPIRE for Independent Schools. Lord Michael Hastings introduced the day and Steve Chalke spoke of the aims and plans for INSPIRE. The launch was facilitated by Justin Blake who is helping to lead on INSPIRE for independent schools. The launch for independent schools was attended by many Heads of schools from across the south of England.
The Windlesham INSPIRE mosaic will be officially unveiled on Armistice Day 2018 in a special school Remembrance Service with Lord Michael Hastings, Global Head of Citizenship for KPMG. Windlesham supports the movement of INSPIRE and the call to action to create a movement of change for peace, empowering young people who not only learn from the past but choose to courageously engage with the present so that the future can be different. Windlesham will use this year’s centenary of the end of WW1, to call young people to take a stand for peace.
