Trevelyan Middle School is a coeducational middle school[2] located in Windsor, Berkshire, England, within the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead Local Authority. The school is attended by approximately 502 boys and girls aged between nine and thirteen.


The school was officially opened on 26 March 1930 as the New Windsor Council School by Sir Charles Trevelyan, the President of the Board of Education. It was renamed Trevelyan School in his honour in 1954.

Since 1979, it has been a co-educational comprehensive middle school, catering for pupils between the ages of nine and thirteen.

In 1998, the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead assumed responsibility for the school from the former Royal County of Berkshire Council.

In 2002 the school moved from its Green Lane home for the previous 72 years to a new site in Wood Close.

Previously a community school administered by Windsor and Maidenhead Borough Council, in November 2016 Trevelyan Middle School converted to academy status. The school is now sponsored by the Pioneer Educational Trust.

Classes and Houses[edit]

Trevelyan Middle School has twenty classes of students, arranged in four year groups of five classes each. Year 5 is the youngest year group in the school, and year 8 the eldest. Students belong to one of the school's five houses:

ARFAEST meaning Respectful (BLUE house)

EADIG meaning Happy (GREEN house)

TOETHIAN meaning Inspire (RED house)

TILUNG meaning Nurture (YELLOW house)

MERCIAN meaning Creativity (PURPLE house)

Prefect System[edit]

Lunchtime, break time and before school is overlooked by a team of numerous Prefects, 4 Senior Prefects, a Deputy Head Boy, a Deputy Head Girl, a Head Boy and a Head Girl, all from year 8. To become a Prefect, the applicant must send a letter to the Head of Year. Possible Senior Prefect contenders are interviewed by a member of staff and the current head boy and girl. The second stage is a presentation to the Head of Year and other teachers. They then announce the new Prefects in the end of the year assembly.


Recently two teams of three year 8 pupils competed in the Windsor round of the nation-wide competition YouthSpeak and have made it through to the next round, Trevelyan team 1 coming first and Trevelyan team 2 coming second. On Thursday, the 6th of February 2020 the school will be hosting the next round: Trevelyan vs teams from Ascot

Accelerated Reader<[4][circular reference][edit]

Accelerated Reader has recently been added as a necessity for students at Trevelyan. The students must have 30 minutes of reading as recorded by the program or they are required to read during their free time at school in the form of a detention. The current record of words read in a year is 7 million.
