Last week a publication was released with the League Tables for GCSE results for State and Independent schools. Following this, we are delighted to announce that Windermere School was the top performing non-selective school in Cumbria including all State and Independent Schools. We were just beaten to first place by a school which is academically selective.
We are committed to selecting students on the basis of character rather than academic ability. We look for students who are most likely to take advantage of the range of opportunities on offer and contribute to our community.
This is an extremely impressive result and fantastic news for the School.
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.
