Welcome to Windermere School an independent, co-educational, day and  boarding school, for students aged 3 – 18 years, in the heart of the English Lake District.

 

I believe that people are what make a good school great and I am proud to lead an exceptional team at Windermere School, from teachers and grounds staff to chefs and receptionists. From their first day, children are nurtured and guided through a range of high-quality learning experiences, leaving us at the end of Sixth Form as confident, compassionate and responsible young people with a love for learning, ready to embrace the life that lies ahead of them.

 

– Ian Lavender, Headmaster
