A Welcome from the Headmaster of Windermere School

 

A visit to Windermere School or a look at our website tells you this is a very special place indeed. Our stunning location has been the inspiration for world-famous artists, poets, and authors, a sanctuary and the antidote to congested city life, a fascination to scientists, a home for adventurers as well as part of the masterpiece of human creative genius that affords us World Heritage status. It is a daily inspiration to every one of us fortunate enough to call it our school.

 

Schools are what we build together and the Windermere community is as special as the place itself. Every child is different, talented, and special and every child matters. Here their differences are respected, their talents developed and their individuality encouraged. Our staff are dedicated to bringing out the very best in everyone and our examination results, university destinations, and the confidence of our pupils bear testimony to this commitment.

 

The beauty of our location, expertise of our staff, and wealth of facilities are enhanced by our size. Windermere is a deliberately small school. Pupils are known and cherished for who they are, every family is a vital part of our community and the voices of everyone are heard. Our classes are small, our pupils are happy, our education is bespoke and the results are stunning.

 

It is a rare privilege to be part of a school with Windermere’s history and potential. I invite you to take a closer look and would be delighted to welcome you and your family to our school.

 

– Mr Peter Hogan, Executive Head
