Members of our Windermere School community share what life in lockdown is like for them.
‘Weekend in the caravan’, by Jack Postlethwaite, Year 6
It was a lovely sunny weekend and we were missing our trips in our caravan so we decided to go and set it up at the bottom of our garden. The only condition was that we had to use the toilet and the shower in the house!
Amber had her paddling pool out and we set up the chairs and table. The night began by having fish and chips from The Brown Horse, Friday night treat. After tea, we sat around the campfire until bedtime chatting. The next morning, Amber woke up first and we had Smoked Salmon and Scrambled egg for breakfast, my favourite. Then we had a family walk – we walked 11km! Amber made a friend, a little Lamb.
I enjoyed our lockdown camping weekend and if the weather stays nice we might do it again.

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.
