Established in 1863, we are a boarding and day school for boys and girls from age 3-18. With access to a spectacular greater classroom, we can really live our school motto: Vincit qui se Vincit. One conquers, who conquers oneself.
Our British Council-accredited Summer Schools provide the perfect setting for fun, adventure and learning English, for boys and girls aged 11-17.
At Windermere School, we welcome enquiries from prospective students and their families of all ages and nationalities.
Windermere School offers a challenging and enriching educational environment starting at our junior school, Elleray Campus, through to our Senior School and Sixth Form, at Browhead Campus.
Windermere Watersports Summer Schools are residential courses for English-speaking students aged 11 to 17. We can cater for beginners through to advanced.
Three of our four daughters have been boarders at the Senior School following our unexpected move to Hong Kong in 2012. One moved back to board at Windermere following two years in Hong Kong and our youngest can't wait to follow in her footsteps and return as an overseas boarder into Year 9. We cannot fault the standard of education and care which the girls have enjoyed throughout their Windermere journeys. In particular, we love the location - and the way in which the Lake District becomes part of the curriculum - and the international flavour of the Senior School.
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.
