Windsor School is positioned to elevate its learners and athletes to establish themselves confidently in the new global arena. The school’s Albany campus, built within the exclusive Albany resort in The Bahamas, is unique in its world-class curricula, state-of-the-art facilities, and true community.

“With the use of the Cambridge curricula and our partner AESA Prep International’s programmes and qualifications we deliver curricula in distinctive and innovative ways,” says Gerry Young, Head of School. “Add our amazing facilities and the conditions that exist here locally for the disciplines of golf, tennis and other specialisms such as marine science, Windsor is unparalleled.”


an expanding school

Windsor opened in New Providence in The Bahamas in 2014 and expanded with the Albany campus in 2017 to train world-class and globally ranked athletes. It also offers rigorous academic curricula and exciting enhanced programmes, making the most of its idyllic location and state-of-the-art facilities.

Learner’s schedules are split into two distinct settings delivering a rounded educational experience. “Every morning, the focus is on core academic subjects, with intensive study in preparation for Cambridge IGCSE and A-levels or spent in the structured online school programme,” says Young. “In the afternoons, learners can participate in our STEP (Skills-based Targeted Experiential Programme) modules or branch off to hone their sporting skills. Athletes dedicate this time to golf and tennis academies, or are able to train independently in sailing, gymnastics, soccer, swimming or equestrianism. Non-sport learners enroll in marine science, STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths),or music and music technology. Alternatively, learners sample a range of taster modules mixing sport and STEP combinations to create their own curriculum.”


experiential learning

Albany’s Tennis Academy is supported by Lleyton Hewitt; the Golf Academy is driven by Mitchell Spearman and enjoys access to the Albany course, host to the Hero World Challenge. The Marine Science STEP programme students immerse in the crystal-blue Bahamian waters where they can gain PADI qualifications while contributing to conservation and research projects; the programme has also partnered with regional research centres such as the Perry Institute for Marine Science’s Reef Rescue Network. For the science-minded there is a STEM lab, while budding musicians learn to record, mix and produce their own tracks on campus and at the industry-leading Sanctuary recording studio in Albany.

Learners have access to facilities including a wet lab and coral nursery; six championship standard tennis courts, equipped with PlaySight smart court technology; a gym and fitness studio with a 400-metre running track, a 25-metre outdoor pool and the 18-hole championship golf course at Albany, with state-of-the-art practice facilities. The school also offers a business and enterprise masterclass: speakers have included a senior partner from Goldman Sachs. Learners benefit from horizon-expanding field trips, such as the New York Stock Exchange and French immersion courses in Paris.

With opportunities to experience art and fashion design, drama, and the full range of vocational and academic fields, flexibility and community are the core of the Windsor School approach. “We have an incredible amount of talent here and continuously challenge ourselves to create avenues of access to as many deserving individuals as possible,” says Young. “Windsor learners are greeted with warmth and compassion, learning to enjoy school, understand their responsibilities, and feeling empowered to make a difference.”
