The Friends meet once per term with participation from the Head of Elleray Campus and Senior School to review fundraising requests and decide on the distribution of funds. Progress reports of current projects are also given. A key role of the Friends is to organise the annual program of social and fundraising events.
A Form Co-ordinator is a parent who volunteers to be the contact point for a student year group, ranging from Pre-School through to Year 12. Having a child in the year group makes it easier for the Form Co-ordinators to create, update and distribute contact lists of student and parent information relevant to the members of their Tutor group. The role also involves communicating Friends activities and social events to their year group, and encouraging parents to attend the events.
The Form Co-ordinators meet twice per term where they can discuss their ideas for events and learn about new ideas and plans. The Form Co-ordinators support the Friends Committee by helping at events.

The first time my daughter and I visited the school she said to me “that is a happy school no question.” The scholastic achievements of the school are evident and an easy measure for a school to demonstrate. What is hard to quantify is the holistic development of a pupil at which, in my experience, Windermere School excels.
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.
