After being selected to create a piece of artwork for Windermere Jetty: Museum of Boats, Steam and Stories, our Year 12 students and local artist, Paul Mason, have been working on ideas for the final piece, which they will start in a couple of weeks’ time. The piece of art will be displayed when the museum opens in 2017.
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.
