Windermere School has finished the 2017/18 academic year with another exceptional set of International Baccalaureate (IB) results. In…
The Friends are an established group formed to support Windermere School through a varied range of fundraising activities and social events during the academic year. The Friends comprise a committee of parents supported by a network of parent Form Co-ordinators.
The Friends’ events and social activities are also intended to create a friendly and welcoming social community for the benefit of parents, students and staff, which helps to highlight the family atmosphere of our school.
Funding is provided for projects which would normally fall outside of the Schools’ budget and which enhance the educational and recreational experience across all ages of the students.
The distribution of the funds raised through these events is made at the discretion of the Committee. The requests for funding are made to the Committee after approval by the Headmaster.
The committee is always looking for new ideas and new volunteers, so if you would like to know more please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org

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.
