Football at The Windsor Boys’ School runs across two terms competing in County, District and National Cup competitions as well as ‘friendly’ fixtures against our local rival schools. Junior Football runs two teams in Year 9 and two teams in Year 10. Senior football boasts a 1st and 2nd XI as well as an Under 16 team.
At Windsor Boys’ School the primary concern is for young footballers to enjoy the game and to be able to play without fear. The school’s success is down to excellent team spirit and a philosophy that involves encouraging skill, attacking play and creativity. The boys are encouraged to ‘want the ball’ and to play with intelligence.
