is a partnership of 11 schools in Brixton, London Borough of Lambeth working together to secure outstanding educational achievement in order to enhance the life chances of our pupils.
We work together within our schools and our partner organisations to share ideas, resources and expertise across the settings to support and facilitate the highest outcomes in attainment and aspirations for our pupils, parents, families, staff and wider communities.
Windmill Cluster of Schools is committed to ensuring a proactive anti-racist approach in all areas of partnership work and strives to embed diversity and inclusion across our shared schools’ culture. We aim to address discrimination through the positive advancement of equity; creating learning opportunities, events and celebrations together which promote respect for all.
Our schools collaborate on a range of programmes each year, often involving external partners. These initiatives enrich pupils’ learning experiences, providing high quality opportunities to raise aspirations and broaden horizon. These experiences give our students the chance to develop new skills and knowledge and celebrate the richness of cultural diversity across the school community.
Working with Windmill Cluster has strengthened our connections to schools across the borough and helped build meaningful relationships with pupils and teachers. Collaborating with schools in the cluster is consistently productive and enjoyable and it’s a joy to see creativity flourish both in the classroom and when the children come onsite to access arts opportunities at Southbank Centre.
