Our Unique Location

Nestled on a hillside within the Lake District National Park, Windermere School enjoys one of the most picturesque views in the Lake District, and arguably, one of the best school views in the world.

Our woodland campus contains all of our academic, boarding, and sports facilities. We are privileged to have our own Watersports Centre, Hodge Howe, less than a mile away.


What is the IB?

The International Baccalaureate Programme (IB) is an internationally recognised qualification for students aged 16 to 18 taking the place of other qualifications, such as A Levels.

At Windermere School, we offer two pathways through Sixth Form with the IB, both designed to challenge, extend, motivate and inspire you. You can be confident that the path you choose will transcend pure academics and equip you with the key transferable life skills that form the foundations of the International Baccalaureate.


“It is a place where people care and without question the support that the students get allows them to achieve amazing results.”

Current Parent

Windermere School is such a unique community to be a part of. Not only is it based in a truly beautiful and inspiring national park, but the environment created by staff and students alike makes for an incredibly supportive, proactive, exciting and international place of learning in which everyone can thrive and be the best they can be.
