On Monday 19 March, our Year 5 pupils were treated to an afternoon of Chemical Magic, where they witnessed our witches (Miss Parry and Mrs Gallon) and wizard (Mr Bond) casting powerful spells. They concocted potions which changed colours as they were poured and magical potions which turned pennies into nickels.
Our Year 5 pupils were joined with pupils from five other primary Schools, including Ambleside, Grasmere, Vicarage Park, Staveley and Coniston. All pupils thoroughly enjoyed the bangs, flashes and powerful fire spells.
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.
