Thank you to all the staff for all your help with the day and making sure that Sports Day ran smoothly. Especially to the rest of the PE department, it couldn’t run without you!
Congratulations to all of you on a fantastic event with some excellent and exciting competitions in lots of events and a thank you to the House Sports Captains for your part in this.
This was a very close competition: multiple new individual records were set – seven were broken on the track alone. Both Boys’ Relay records falling! Only 74 points separate 1st and 4th in the final standings.

Mr Reid (Head of Sport)
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.
