Windlesham House School
TQ 11 SW 12/399


Originally called Highden. Large L-shaped mansion. According to Dallaway's
History of West Sussex the Goring family built a house here in the late Cl7,
but the exterior of the present building appears about a century later, though
it was renovated in 1838. Extra storey added when the house was converted
into a School about 30 years ago. Originally the home consisted of 2 storeys
and a basement which was above ground level on the east side owing to the slope
of the ground. Nine windows facing south, originally 7 windows facing east,
to which 5 window bays have been added by the School. Red brick and grey headers
alternately. Long and short stone quotas. Stringcourse above ground floor.
Modillion cornice above first floor. Pantile roof. Windows with segmental
heads, keystones over glazing bars intact. The south front has a stone porch, the east front long and short quoins flanking the centre portion of 3 window bays, also a tablet above the ground floor recording that the house was renovated in 1838. Modern School additions to the north-east and north-west, not of special interest.
