The Mary Wakefield Music Festival takes place in Kendal every two years and the Music department always try very hard to support it.
This year, we enjoyed much success but the main thing our students gained from the festival was the opportunity to practice and then perform in front of a supportive audience. The nature of music and, in particular, music adjudication, means that not everyone agrees with what is said, some people do not perform to the best of their ability and sometimes other exceed their expectations.
Windermere School students represented the Music department with aplomb and will enjoy recreating some of their performances at the forthcoming Rock Up Concert on Friday 26 April and the Summer Concert on Friday 24 May.

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.
